Internet Drop Causes Inability to Quit App - macOS

WHAT IS THE BUG

Application is not quitting when right-clicking icon in dock or icon in status bar > quit. It just hangs indefinitely. If you force quit, the anytypeHelper process remains running. If you try to relaunch the application before manually killing the running process/PID AnyType will complain there is already an instance running.

Anytype_Anytype_20230123_162901

HOW TO REPRODUCE IT

  1. Launch the application on macOS.
  2. Simulate an internet disconnection or very slow network speed.
  3. Right-click the dock icon and attempt to quit the application.
  4. Option-click the dock icon and force quit the application.
  5. Attempt to relaunch the application and see above error message.
  6. Open Activity Monitor and force quit the process or open Terminal and sudo kill [PID].

THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

The application should cleanly exit regardless of internet connectivity.

SYSTEM INFORMATION

  • OS: macOS Monterey 12.5.1
  • Device: 2017 MacBook Pro
  • Anytype Version: 0.30.0 (latest at time of writing)

Hi @patrickb,

Thanks for the post. Yep, I’ve ran into this occasionally as well on mac. It does close, eventually, but I’ve no idea what the hang up is about. Would be handy if you can provide .log files and File>Account Debug

Hey, I will try and mess around with it and see if I can get the logs generated. As of right now it’s not writing to the log files (likely because the app is unresponsive); thank you for the update!
