When I load AF pub files inside the Publisher 2 Books Tab, Publisher crashes when I open a file from within the books tab.

Hi Rory, there were some improvements made to this in 2.0.3, are you still experiencing the crashes with this version?

That being said, I can lock up Publisher 2.0.3 with the Books feature without trying too hard so I suspect there are still some gremlins lurking there. My recommendation for working with a Book for now is to create the book and then close it and to work on the chapter files separately. Open the book only when you want to update page numbers or something like that, then save it and close it again. You shouldn't have to do this but it's probably the safest way to work until the next update.

Cheers

This is exactly what I do just to get my brain back into the rhythm of working on chapters individually instead of one 300+ page document, which gets large, slower, and loses the scroll wheel after a certain number of pages.

Just curious if any updates/bug fixes are around the corner. I have found that anything related to the left window of panels, particularly "Books" and "Find and Replace" (which I used to use often enough) freeze up AP 2, and not always with workarounds like this.
