Project Editor Crashing in Hangar

Do you have any add-ons in your Community folder? If yes, please remove and retest before posting.
Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?
Yes of course, that’s the issue

Brief description of the issue:
In the Hangar I open the Project Editor in order to take a generated thumbnail screenshot of my aircraft livery. As soon as the Project Editor window appears the entire sim freezes. The music is still playing and I can minimize to desktop. Alt-F4 doesn’t close the sim, nor does right clicking to close the sim or project editor window icons in the taskbar.
To close the sim I need to open the Task Manager and End Process there.

The has only been a recent issue in the last week or so. The only change I have made is to update the Nvidia drivers, firstly to 457.30 and now to 461.40 - the crash occurred with both of these drivers.
This issue wasn’t apparent on the first MSFS Game Ready Driver that was released.

Is anyone else having this problem? I took the same generated screenshot before the update with no issues.
