I have Removed Manipulate from the outside of TabView. Now the problem seems to have gone away. Now TabView is the main interface, and it calls functions which uses Manipulate. Before I was using Manipulate which has TabView inside it. I am still learning all of this stuff, so I might not be doing it right :) but I do not think Mathematica should crash none-the-less. Any way, here is the current file, in case you are interested, which works OK now (keep fingers crossed) http://12000.org/my_notes/simple_RV_simulator/index.htm I like the new Mathematica GUI features, but I still have hard time arranging stuff on it where I want them. For example, with TabView, when I had too many tabs, I did not know how to tell it to make them stacked one on top of each others, like in a 2 rows, so they do not go too far to the right. Then I found I can make Alignment Left, which had more space to stack them vertically, even though I wanted the Tabs at the top. So I compromised. May be with more time, I'll get better at it. But it would be nice if the next version of Mathematica comes with a GUI builder, where one can just drag and drop controls where they want them. It would make it easier to design an interface that way, I think. Nasser
