Is it FMP or Apple that's the problem?

I am in the process of rebuilding a file (fmp12). I am able to copy the layout from the old version (also fmp12) to create the layout in the new version. Or, at least I was. Now, everytime I copy the layout to the clipboard, the program crashes and I get one of those lovely reports about which I understand very little.

 

Does this abrupt crashing mean that my copy of FMP may need to be uninstalled and a clean copy put back on? Given that I am rebuilding a file because of corruption problems in the old one, does the abrupt quitting corrupt my new file? So far I haven't gotten that message upon re-opening about it not being shut down correctly. Since I was able to copy other layouts, might it just be this particular layout that is a problem? Or is my computer system going nuts (Mountain Lion, 10.8.4)?

 

This isn't a small file to rebuild and I don't want to be wasting any effort and time if I can prevent something from happening.

 

Thanks for any insight.
