Weird unhandled exception with undoing and redoing

Hi. I used undo to go back and copy some text I cut and accidently forgot to paste - but it crashed the whole program when I used redo to get back to the current version! Something about an unhandled exception and a lot of unknown errors? I think I lost all my work!!! :frowning: Please could you fix it? And maybe add a history for things you have cut so you can paste them again if you overwrite the clipboard? Here is the error:

It wouldn’t let me save or close, and now my chapter is gibberish symbols and letters. :frowning: Your program is AWFUL.

I’VE LOST THREE DAYS WORTH OF WORK!!!

Thanks for the detailed bug report. I’ll look into it. You can recover your work from backups made when the project was last closed. You’ll find details of how to do that in this post:

If you hadn’t set up your automatic backups, look at the fail-safe backups. This would at least give you your work up until yesterday.
