Periodically, I cannot start up DCAD or open any DCAD files. It gets to the gray screen of DCAD and the little blue circle whirls around (Win. 7 Pro) and that's it. In Stucksville. I close out and try again and same problem. It only seems to get fixed when I do a complete reboot of the computer. I am running the latest version of DCAD 18. I don't recall this happening with v.17.

Anyone else experiencing this? Any solution to avoiding the reboot process and the time that takes?

Take a look at Task Manager after closing and make sure there is nothing dcad showing, if there is do an end task on it - may save a reboot

sometimes I'll get that and Alt-Tab through the open programs and when it gets back to Dcad, there is the circular reference warning window.
