When going to "File->Open" or with a new label open trying to save it BarTender locks up and/or crashes.
Custom BarTender File Dialog
In BarTender 9.2, we replaced the Windows file dialog with our own custom file dialog. The new dialog supportst opening and saving files to Librarian. There were also additional enhancements such as adding shortcuts to the shortcut bar that were appropriate for BarTender (such as"BarTender Documents" instead of "My Documents").
Using the default Windows File Dialog
In some cases, our custom dialog may not operate as quickly as the default Windows file dialog, causing the slowdown and in some cases crashing. With directories containing hundreds of files, the Windows file dialog seems to have better performance, and this can be noticeable on a slow PC.
As of 9.4 SR2, it is possible to switch to the Windows common file dialog using an undocumented registry value. To do so you'll need to access the following registry key (type "regedit" on Windows' search box to access the Registry Editor):
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Seagull Scientific\Librarian\File Dialog
And then create a new registry value with the following settings:
Name = Use Windows Dialog Type = REG_DWORD Data = 0x00000001 (1)
Using this registry key is not recommended for anyone using Librarian, because it disables Librarian integration with other applications.
