I've been enjoying FTM 2008 for a couple weeks with enthusiasm, but it crashes very frequently.
It freezes often when merging data from a record found online. Usually just restarting and going through the merge process again will keep the process going.
But I'm having much trouble now adding Sources. For example, when adding a new source for a new document I've found, the program quits and sends a crash report to Microsoft.
Specifically, when on the People->person->facts page, I add a new fact (e.g., birth info), and then hit the new source button, I get the 'add new source' popup without trouble. (though often in the list of sources I don't see some sources I've added manually). Then I type in the "Source Title" and some "Citation Detail" and hit OK, the whole program quits instantly and offer to send crash info to Microsoft. This is a highly consistent crash.
I don't mind the crashes as much as the inability to document my sources!
I have applied at least one patch and comapacted my data.
