Adding Decal Component Crashes Editor [4.14]
My editor is crashing when I attempt to add a decal component to a Character Blueprint. As soon as you click to add the decal component the whole editor crashes and doesn't allow me to send a bug/error report.
It also doesn't allow me to drag and drop a decal into the Character Blueprint.

I found a fix for the issue. So far, I no longer get the instant crash or the crash when moving around in the viewport if I luckily get past the instant crash. As I mentioned above, the issue was the graphics drivers. Just as a notice, this is for a MacPro late 2013. The fix was to run the AMD Cleanup Utility that comes with newer, albeit unsupported, drivers for the FirePro D700. Then delete "c:\windows\system32\atidxx64.dll". Once that is done, install the modded drivers from https://www.mxdriver.com/ per the instructions provided.
I think the core issue might be that the UE4 Editor is using some methods or classes in the new dll that didn't exist in the old driver's dll I had.
Regardless, thanks for the help! Hope this helps others who might be in the same situation.

I am having the same issue. The problem only exists on one machine. I can add decals on a mac and two other PC's but not the third PC. There isn't much of a scenario but here are the specs from dxdiag:
MacPro6,1 (late 2013 running Windows 10 through bootcamp) Intel Xeon CPU E5-1650 v2 @ 3.5HGz (12 CPUs), ~3.5GHz 64GB RAM DirectX 12 Dual AMD FirePro D700 (FireGL V) 6GB Driver Version for graphics cards: 15.301.2101.0
The graphics card driver is the max I can go using the apple software update tool. ATI has a block on installing newer drivers directly on this hardware so it's either Apple update or nothing. There is a way to install hacked versions of the drivers but first I want to know if this can be fixed with what I currently have.
The Steps: Create a new project -> add a decal -> crash and if the decals were added from the other machines the steps are: Open project from .uproject or launcher -> instant crash
Both of these do not give me the usual popup asking to send crash info to Epic, just the windows crash window that asks if I want to find a solution online. Oh, and it crashes on 4.13 and 4.14 on the said pc.
Any help would be appreciated.
P.S. On the rare occasion that it does load, if I move the view with right-click/move mouse it crashes.
