Hi Don,

        If you can email the file that is causing a problem and instructions on how
to crash it I will have a look to see what I can do to fix the problem.

I was editing page of song lyrics (some I picked up off the web) in order to
print them out. When I got down to bottom of the page, and tried to delete
a block of superflous verbage, an error message and Abi shut down. I lost
all my work of course, so I redid the whole thing, down to the point where I
lost it, saved it, repeated the block delete, and it shut down again. I
reopened Abi, retrieved the file, and tried to delete the same block of text
(highlighting it with the left mousekey held down), and when I hit delete,
it still shut down. The error message follows.......

ABIWORD caused an invalid page fault in
module ABIWORD.EXE at 017f:00445782.

Is there something a novice like me can do to fix this or do I have to wait
for the nice folks at Abiword to release a new update? Bugs and all, I'm
still an avid Abi fan. I love the concept. I've updated it several times
now, and haven't had to start learning it all over every time, like I did
with each new version of WP.
