If the front end of your Wolfram product crashes, Wolfram Technical Support may ask you to generate a report to help diagnose the cause of the issue.

If the front end of your Wolfram product quits unexpectedly, generate a crash report:

  1. Launch the Wolfram product that causes the crash and take the necessary steps to cause it to crash. The crash log will be generated automatically.

  2. Open the Terminal and type “open /var/tmp/”.

    Press Enter to open the file browser in the resulting directory.

  3. Select the log file named “wolfram_front_end_crash.log” and copy the log file to a safe location.
