I don't know what system you are using, so I cannot help you with 
completion crash.

for view point selector:
changing the view point selector allows you to paste the new view point 
value in your graphic command:
Suppose you have:
and you want to change the view: position your selector at the position
an  option would be in your Show command, go to the view selector,
change it  and paste it. Do not forget the comma in you test an the
evaluate your  command again.

Hope this helps,

Objet:	[mg10461] Viewpoint selector and completion crash Mathematica

Hello all!

I'm having a particularly frustrating problem with Mathematica 3.0 and I
hope someone here can help.

Whenever I try to change the viewpoint by bringing up the viewpoint
selector dialog box it works fine, but it never really returns control
to the front end properly.  When I go back to the FE and try to edit it
the screen and notebook don't match up properly.  For example, when I
begin to type it put my text in the middle of the Graphics cell I just
created.  Or the notebook window background will bleed out of the
notebook window and cover the Mathematica menu window.  Or the scroll
bars on the rhs of the window no longer display; they function if I
guess the right place to click but even then it won't scroll properly.
For example, if I scroll up it'll move the bottom line up but not write
the correct new text in its place.  Also, new output cells do not
display properly, and opening and closing cells

The problem also has occurred when I use <ctrl>k to complete a name, but
not when I switch to another app (if one is open) or open a help

Basically the only way I've found to work around the problem is to a.
Close everything down and restart Mathematica b.  Practice Zen typing
to finish my thought and go to option a. Or: c.  Live without the
Viewpoint selector.

None of these suggestions are very satisfactory.

As far as hardware, I have a Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 video card with 4MB
ram operating in 800x600 with 256 colors.

Any help is *greatly* appreciated!
