Once the GUI is up, (from TabView and Manipulate), then if I hit Enter, then it crashes. But if I DELETE the cell in which the GUI is displayed BEFORE I hit the enter key, then Mathematica does NOT crash. It seems hitting enter when the GUI is up is the problem. Now, I make sure I delete the cell in which the gui is in everytime before I do anything,.sometimes I forget and end up losing some code changes. Nasser
