Crashing on "Preview" button

I don't see a sticky as to the guidelines for posting bugs so here goes:

I just started using Game Salad yesterday and it's crashed a few times on me when I hit "Preview". In all 3 times I've had 2 separate projects open and have noticed it's pretty slow when I have more than one project open. It crashes to the point where it freezes up, in fact my whole computer does and I have to reboot.

I'm on an iMac Intel Core Duo 2, 2.4Ghz, 4GB DDR2 SDRAM

Not sure if there's a workaround for this, just thought I'd mention it. I have the Express version.

    For me, heavy/repetitive use of the "back" button and "preview" seem to slow GS down during a session. I avoid using "back" all together by manually navigating through GS.

    Whenever GS gets slow, I just save all of my projects, close it down completely and then reopen everything. That seems to resolve most of my issues.

    Another recommendation is to keep your mac as cool as possible. I run SMC Fan Control set to 75% of the absolute max fan speed for my little macbook...that keeps me in the 95˚-105˚ F range while running GS.

    EDIT:
    Forgot to link SMC Fan Control...

    I wouldn't recommend having more than 1 project open.
