Filemaker 13 Crash With Layout Design


     Ok...had a FM 12 database started and wanted to take advantage of some of the FM 13 features. Updated to 13 two days ago. Opened the FM12 Advanced File in FM 13 without any problems. Added some features, changed some design components.

     Noticed periodically that I would see weird "outlined" objects on some of my layouts (as if they were added and now missing. Didn't think much of it and deleted them with the thought that I will go back and add them later

     Just came back to do some additional work and now every time I try to manipulate an object in design mode I get a fatal exception error.

     My initial thoughts are somehow I might have opened the file up in FM12 and did some design work. The symptoms kinda started around copying and pasting a popover button from one layout to the next. I don't know enough about FM to really diagnose the problem and its at a point where I cannot change any of the layouts without crashing (and as usual I have a million hours into this file)

     I did try the recovery but I didn't really detect any problems but did rebuild the indexes. I'd appreciate any experienced FM users out there who might give me some troubleshooting tips. Here is the crash information:
