Summary0017204: Exception_Access_Violation when changing font or styles in Story Editor
DescriptionHello! I'm having an issue where Scribus will give me the error message "Exception_Access_Violation" and crash after I change text in the Story Editor (usually font or style) and then click back on the main window.

I'm using Text Frames to do chapters in a book using the Lulu and Createspace 6x9 template; each chapter spans maybe 8 pages each (8 text frames linked), and has text copy-pasted from a Word doc. The first two chapters were fine, the third almost constantly gives me this error.
Additional InformationI first noticed this error in 1.6.0, tried updating to 1.6.1 to see if that fixed it, but it didn't.

Brand new to this program, very possible it's user error!
TagsNo tags attached.

Something I've noticed: sometimes when I open the Story Editor, or when I change windows to another program, it doesn't all load. It shows blank like this.

If I resize the window, it loads everything and seems to crash less. No idea if related.
