Hi William,

I took another look and can confirm what you are seeing, at first I tried with “Save to Files” and that works OK, I didn’t see the “Save Image” button initially as it was off screen, however, when I did try the “Save Image” button, the app just silently quit just as you see. I think this needs a bug report.

I also tried this in the simulator with the log window open and no entries are passed to the log when the app quits, so no clues there.

I looked at Photos to see if the same menu appears there, but the options available are different and “Save Image” isn’t available in Photos, so there may be something Monte needs to adjust in the mergPop plugin to fix this.

@Jacque, there is no “Save image” handler, this is an option (button) in the iOS menu that is triggered by mergPopActivity.

This may be a bug, but I can’t find anything on LCQC for it right now, although I’m sure I remember it being discussed on this list previously (that’s how I knew what the fix was), but I don’t remember the conclusion.
