    I have version 20131106 and for the last few weeks, all thoughout the day, the program crashes intermittently when I preview. I can preview in an external browser but that really slows me down. Looking for clues.

      Hi,

      I can't be super specific without seeing your page but sounds like it's
      some JavaScript code in the page being previewed. It could be in the
      page itself or included through a library or service. Some of these
      included JS may not function properly without additional care when
      you're previewing locally. This isn't a HTML-Kit specific issue, btw.

      If it's difficult to track down what code change may have caused this,
      you could try F8 preview or the Extended Preview option. It's the
      monitor icon on the far side of the menu bar.

      Hope this helps.

        Thank you. All my sites employ JS. I have not found a pattern but I will pay more attention to it. In the past the program was not comfortable with php extensions, even if there was no actual php programming. I always use php includes. The most recent update at least allows me to preview a php page without whining. This issue has only recently developed but seems to be escalating. I have to restart the program about every half hour now. I have to track the occurances more carefully but it seems to be happening on all my sites, php or html. Kit has not behaved this way until a few weeks ago and I've been using it for years.
