If Tinderbox crashes, please send the crash logs to bernstein@eastgate.com. We’ll have a calm discussion with the software to discourage such behavior!

Sure. Sorry. Short of time here and forget where crash logs live (I once knew). Just wanted to get the document posted as an example, mentioning a possible occasional crash, just in case. Happened twice after I opened the old document in the latest version, but hasn’t reoccurred. I think it could be something specific to my machine or some gremlin in that old document, i.e. not the “fault” of Tinderbox.


Emailed. Was for 8.6.0. Probably won’t occur now that have updated to 8.6.2.
