Is there a way to tell RealmWorks NOT to open a realm with the previously opened tabs open?

One of my tabs is causing a crash (I sent a report) every time and I can't get to ANY content in that realm now.

Tried deleting local preferences.... RW is still crashing and RW is still trying to open the same tabs.

I can open other realms (but not the one I really need).

This should be the preferences file. That has worked previously for me.

Apparently I wasn't deleting the RIGHT local preferences... for others having this issue... it was not the delete local prefs on the Tools menu of the launcher... instead it was an item under a little pop up menu next to the realm on the realms list.

Now I can at least open my realm, but a simple search caused a crash (sent a bug report).

You can issue a bug report.

Another thing to try is to open the realm and press the button to perform a re-index. This sometimes solves this sort of problem.

Thanks Farling... I did a re-index and now I can search without crashing again

Re-indexing solves a lot of those sorts of problems.

Maybe RW should keep track and pop up a requester every n'th time a realm is opened

"It has now been n times since you last re-indexed the database. It is recommended you do this every now and then. Do you want to: Do it now, postpone it to later, never bother me with this again?"

I myself keep forgetting this little trick.

Could be done - I was under the impression that it could take quite some time for guys with a very huge realm that had lots of changes to it over time.

If this is the case (it taking a long time) I would hate for it to start automatically (like Win10 updates - "you are in a hurry? No worries, this will just take a couple of minutes or five and we already started"),
