AC26 API 'APIEnv_GetDocumentFrom3DSettingsID' is crashing


Hello, I've been experimenting on 3D Documents and I've encountered crashing when I use 'APIEnv_GetDocumentFrom3DSettingsID'. Then I checked and run the Database_Control example and it also crashes on that line ' GSErrCode err = ACAPI_Environment (APIEnv_GetDocumentFrom3DSettingsID, &dbPars.databaseUnId, &documentFrom3DType);'.


static void		Do_Change3DDocument ()
	API_DatabaseUnId	*dbases = nullptr;

	if (ACAPI_Database (APIDb_GetDocumentFrom3DDatabasesID, &dbases) == NoError) {
		GSSize nDbases = BMpGetSize (reinterpret_cast<GSPtr>(dbases)) / Sizeof32 (API_DatabaseUnId);

		if (nDbases > 0) {
			API_DatabaseInfo dbPars;
			API_DocumentFrom3DType documentFrom3DType;
			BNZeroMemory (&dbPars, sizeof (API_DatabaseInfo));
			dbPars.databaseUnId = dbases[0];

			GSErrCode err = ACAPI_Environment (APIEnv_GetDocumentFrom3DSettingsID, &dbPars.databaseUnId, &documentFrom3DType);
			if (err == NoError) {
				documentFrom3DType.attributeOptions.shouldUseUniformCutAttributes = !documentFrom3DType.attributeOptions.shouldUseUniformCutAttributes;
				err = ACAPI_Environment (APIEnv_ChangeDocumentFrom3DSettingsID, &dbPars.databaseUnId, &documentFrom3DType);
				if (err != NoError)
					DBPrintf ("APIEnv_ChangeDocumentFrom3DSettingsID returns with error code");
			} else {
				DBPrintf ("APIEnv_GetDocumentFrom3DSettingsID returns with error code");

			BMKillHandle (reinterpret_cast<GSHandle*> (&documentFrom3DType.cutSetting.shapes));

	if (dbases != nullptr)
		BMpFree (reinterpret_cast<GSPtr>(dbases));


This is the exception detected by Visual Studio



I also tried running the AC25 addon and it works fine so this looks like a problem for AC26 API
