    Hey all,
    I've been using DP 7.2, on a mac g5. when i do the sequence of 'undo' then 'rewind' using the number pads' "7", the program crashes. we've gone back to 7.0, and that has helped, but i a avoid using this sequence, out of fear of losing another four hours work.
    Our keypad button assignment is not stock, and a buddy suggested maybe it is a 'hot key'. I'm brand new to DP. Not sure what OS we're using, i'll have to check next time i get down to the studio. Any thoughts?

    Mac's are pretty stable so perhaps it is the hotkey assignment. If you change the hotkey to something else does it work? I guess I should say, if you change the hotkey to something other than one DP already has assigned within it's own program.

    This is not a solution to the crashing, but DP 7.2 does have an autosave function that will hit the Save button automatically at specified intervals. Mine saves every two minutes. (You can lose a lot in two minutes, never mind four hours.)
