PM 5.0.0 freezing / crashes
« on: December 21, 2014, 02:30:57 PM »
When I close all contact sheets and then close PM, it is freezing when I next open PM.  Preferences are set to open the most recent contact sheet at launch.  But if all contact sheets were closed, a dialogue window comes up to select a contact sheet but PM is freezing when I try to respond to the dialogue box.  The only option is to close PM.  It has happened more than a dozen times.

I had to ingest some new files to run PM at all - which triggers the ingest window and then opens that contact sheet at conclusion of ingest.

I'm not sure whether this had been a problem earlier with the 4.x versions - because I never ran into it. 

I have reset my preferences to "Do Nothing" and I think that will keep it from trying to open a contact sheet and freezing.

Obviously the solution is to never close all contact sheets and them close PM - but that seems to be a bug.

I'm running PM 5.0.0  Build 15800 and Windows 8.1 - most recent build and all software current.

Thanks, Kirk - that should do it.
