This happens by default when exporting a recipe. If I don't click on the destination folder before clicking Save or press Enter then Foldit freezes. Only way to quit it is by clicking the apple->Force Quit. Task manager doesn't always work for some games but it worked this time as well. On the other hand, I suppose it helps prevent me from overwriting a previous exported recipe by accident.

Just as a heads up: If you have to force-close Foldit, there won't be any Stack Trace in the log (or the debug.txt)
However, the log DOES still provide the Build you're using, which helps. :)

So the Steps are as follows, correct?
1) Open Recipe Editor
2) Click Save As
3) Click Export
4) Either: Click Save or Press Enter on keyboard
5) Foldit Hangs

Correct, I did it again and uploaded the log before I force-quit. The long copied text didn't post in my comment but the attachment worked.

Alright, looks like it's a Mac-Only issue, as in Windows when you try to click Save without having typed in a Filename or clicked on a Directory it doesn't close that OS window, it just makes the typical 'warning' noise (for Windows OS) while flashing it to get your attention.

This might even be something Apple has to fix with MacOS, but I'll still add this to my Bug Report document fir the devs :)
