I have installed all updates and am very happy with the changes so far. The conversion of my realms worked smoothly.

During the preparation for the last session I had several crashes of the software while editing Notes. One crash also occurred during the session itself.

I can not nail the crashes to a certain action or feature I am using right now. If I find a reproducible crash then I will file a bug report. For now I just wanted to ask if other users have crashes while editing notes.

Not while editing notes. Generally, RW only crashes when I either have it open with lots of other apps running or when I have lots of tabs open. I've had it crash during sessions when trying to share large maps with lots of pins, while also having lots of tabs open. These smack of memory issues and I now keep the Task Manager open so that I can monitor memory use to avoid freezing and crashing programs.

You might find it helpful to do the same while editing. Keep an eye on memory usage in Task Manager while you are using RW and see how number of tabs and simultaneous use of other software impacts your system's memory.

I also experienced crashes with 204. I will wait a bit till it becomes more stable.

Edit: I didn't have many tabs open (maybe 2) and only RW running. And 8gb RAM.

Thanks for the advice. I will keep an eye on the Task Manager when using Realm Works in the future.

I'm getting some crashes, and reporting them in weird times.

Generally, it seems to happen on a save for a topic.

Sometimes, it's when I do things too fast. I was linking plot points together and dragged from A to B then A to C, then tried to delete the A to B link (I linked wrong) and it all crashed out on me. Happened in about 2 seconds.

Same with the topic saves.

Not sure what's up there. I just keep reporting it.

And sometimes when I do things slowly.

Sent a bunch of crash reports this morning.

I think I'm done entering data for the day.

I have a lot of crashes too, and now it happens every time i try to open RW. I have reported the problem, but right now i can't even use RW :-(

If i am quick, i can click on another topic while RW is starting up (when all the windows begin popping up), and then it won't crash. But when i try to open the topic that gave me all the crashes to start with, it crashes again.

I am having similar issues. he crashing I am getting seems to be linked specifically to when making changes in Manage Names, where are I am changing the case matching to Case Sensitive from Ignore. can change snippets and other data without issue, but getting crashes every time I save after making the Case Match change.

First of all, are you running with the latest build 204?

Second, I can't reproduce any problems based on the limited information you provide here. Can you please elaborate on what steps you are taking and when the crash occurs? It sounds like it's more than just changing the case matching behavior, and we need to know all the pieces to reproduce (and fix) the problem.
