Pause "On Unhandled Exceptions" stopped working (Intuitive Debugger)

Reproduction Steps

1) Set in scripts to pause “On Unhandled Exceptions” (if not already set) and close Studio:

  1. Open Studio and create a LocalScript
  2. Put this to force an error:
a = {}
  1. Run

Expected Behavior

The debugger should stop at the error line

Actual Behavior

The debugger does not stop at the error line. This started to happen after this:


Manually select “On All Exceptions” and then click “On Unhandled Exception” again.

  • But if I close Studio and open it again and repeat the process, the problem reoccurs.

Issue Area: Studio
Issue Type: Other

As I reported here (ABSURDLY SLOW DEBUG (Intuitive Debugger) - #4 by rogeriodec_games), Roblox has again allowed to disable the Intuitive Debugger.
But the problem reported in this thread remains, so I’ll keep it open.

I am experiencing this as well. To add context to the level of impact:

We rely on this debugger break to catch problems during development. If they get silently buried in output spew, we miss critical problems during regression tests. Please fix this ASAP.


Thanks for the report! We’ll follow up when we have an update for you.


Hello folks! There was an issue with initialization for that setting, which is why switching between settings made it work again, but restarting the Studio would re-surface the problem. This issue should be fixed now.



Testing the same situation (after activating Intuitive Debugger), it seems the bug was solved.
