I’m receiving occasional reports of PopClip freezing up when activating the Search action, and when using certain PopClip extensions. This affects version 2019.9 and 2019.9.1.
Thanks to a customer who emailed me at email@example.com and assisted with debugging, I am making progress with diagnosing the problem.1 I will continue to work on a fix, and I will update this blog post with more information.
Update, 29 Sep 2019: Another customer reported that deleting and reinstalling PopClip made the problem go away.
Here is a video showing the problem, thanks to my helpful customer (posted with permission):
