Oops, I just asked for this information. 

Let me add that the current unstable version (1.3.9) is almost ready for
release as the next stable version. I have been using it for production
work for several months and it is really very stable. It has a lot of
new and very useful features. Just save often, and occasionally do a
"Save As" under a new filename as a backup. 

You can install 1.3.9 alongside Just bear in mind that 1.3.9
can open files, but not the other way around. And 1.3.9 by
default will auto-save a document, overwriting the file on disk with
its new format. So, to make sure you can still open the file in make a copy of it with Explorer and then open the copy in

I suspect 1.3.9 won't solve whatever problems you are having, but it's
free, so you might as well take it for a spin.
