Hello Amy,

I verified with my Mac version (PowerPc), I can't reproduce this crash. 
I use this version regularly on Windows and Linux and didn't have this 
problem.
Does it crash systematically for you (ie, every time you make a cut, 
whatever the document) , or only in some cases or following a certain 
scenario ?

Same for my tests

It's very weird, I don't remember such a crash. I wonder if someone can 
reproduce it.
If you are stuck in your work, the 9.55 version is still available from 
the Distribution page.
Before to install a new snapshot, you may rename your current Amaya 
version so that you can  experiment the new snapshot and keep a stable 
version if it has new bugs.

Thanks,
Laurent
