[BUG] Windows automatically closed
Sorry for posting here I didnt see a feedback support or bug forum.

Anywho, I was working on an image and I needed to open another window to grab an element and when I opened the new windows my other 3 windows suddenly closed, my toolbox reset to default and nothing saved. I lost hours of work and have to start my entire project from scratch Sad

I know I should save frequently and I didnt, but I had no clue the program would just restart itself like that. I am so sad right now Sad.

I got no crash report, nothing. just suddenly the new window was the only window and my toolbox was defaulted back to 2 seperate windows for tool options and layers (I combine the 2 into one window)

In addition to the above, (a simple google search of "gimp bug report" would have brought it up in the first page of results.

before you submit your report to bugzilla, read this article on writing a good report to ensure you include everything needed.

Then in the meantime(after sending your report) if you still wish to let us help you on THIS forums, we'd be happy to if you include:

- Version of Operating system
- Version of Gimp (2.x.x )
- Any error messages
*Also, if you can remember the time that Gimp restarted/crashed, open your "Event viewer" & look at the error or messages around that time, there's a good chance there is an application error or warning of some kind.

- When you find it, what does it read?
