Freeze when over "acquire" menu

Recommended Posts

It's very simple: the moment I hover over the acquire tab (under file) the program just freezes. I don't know why and I don't even know what "acquire" does but it's very annoying cause I hover over the button when I want to save something and then the program freezes and my progress is lost.

Hello @Je Hooft and Welcome to the forum :)


If you 'hover' over the Acquire you should see an option to get something from your Scanner or Camera.

You could try unplugging your camera?


Depending on how your camera driver is implemented, it might just be accessing the storage on the camera in a very inefficient manner. Or it could be buggy and not handle certain internal errors properly.
