Hey guys! So I'm trying to publish a Layout with a section and every time I have the textures activated on the section and not just color textures Archicad crashes while publishing. I tried to use different textures because I thought maybe a custom texture from me is causing it but no difference. I can only use color textures with no crashing.
Have you tried closing the file and opening it again from within Archicad using the File> Open menu but selecting open and repair form the options. That process often fixes a lot of peculiar issues like this.

I'm sorry to hear that you experience crashes! May I ask you what Archicad version are you using? Is it Archicad 25 build 50xx by any chance? If yes, according to your description I'm suspicious that this is a known issue. This crash is caused when the file has any shell which uses surfaces without textures. It can be caused by deleted surface textures or surfaces that do not have textures by default (e.g.: Painting surfaces). The crash could be avoided by following these steps: 1 - Do not delete surfaces before publishing; 2 - Replace the missing textures; 3 - Check if any surface called "Paint - ..." is used, then set another one with texture instead.
If it is not the Archicad version you are using and these steps are not helping I suggest reaching out to your local support with the description of the issue. Please also send them the bugID which pops up in the bug reporter application after the crash.
I just had printer drivers updated on my computer a few weeks back so they are up to date. This issue didn't start for me personally until I updated to the latest Build. I have the Graphisoft team working on my computer today remotely, hopefully they will discover the issue.
I will report back on here what they found just in case it is useful to anyone else.
