Crash with Splitter devices

The Beta version crashes whenever I connect/disconnect Splitter type devices.
Are these devices still supported by WM2?
I can't find them in the docs, but I found (and copied/pasted) them in several macros all around...
they are very useful! Is there a currently supported device to replace them?

By the way I and my team are switching back to WM2.2  :(
Beta seems too much unstable!

I just tried the multi-splitter under flow control and it worked fine -- no crashes.

I was not talking about Multi-Splitter  :(

The problem is about the Splitter device type.
You cannot find it under the creation toolbar, you can just copy/paste it from other projects that use it.
It seems that this device has been removed from the toolbar and the documentation,
but it is still supported by WM....

Yes, the Splitter is deprecated now in WM since essentially each output is a splitter -- just wire another connection from that port. It is still internally present in case existing worlds are loaded, but you cannot add it to new worlds except pathologically (copying a splitter and pasting it)

I have also encountered and replicated the Splitter instability issue and it is fixed for 2.3B3. B3 is fixing an incredible assortment of crash bugs and other wonky behavior!

Thank you very much Remnant, we appreciate.
By the way the Splitter device is very useful for us, because it allows us to centralize connections...
how to do it with other not-deprecated devices?
Thank you again,
Davide

Try using the "Checkpoint" device under Flow Control. It is essentially a do-nothing device, except that it allows you to "hold" a bunch of wires together, such as frequently-needed inputs to some block.
