You are right. On screens with 8 columns of thumbs, in library view there is no crash if I select the thumbs in the 8th column.Can you try the library view (which is generally better to use). I have possibly an idea what could create the crash.
Hi, can you post a set of debug logs showing the issue (see here for how to). When you say it crashes, does MP2 actually crash to desktop or does it just lock up?If I have a folder with the right number of images in it to exactly fill the "grid" as far as the right hand side of the screen (in my case that's 8 columns of thumbs) then selecting any thumbnail in the 8th column makes MP2 crash. If there is less or more than 8 columns, it doesn't crash.
