I have discovered that I can only run SpeedGrade if all other apps are closed (with the exception of Premiere Pro - it seems to tolerate that one). This includes any web browser or even my mail. In most cases, SpeedGrade will freeze if I try to launch ANYTHING while it is running. Sometimes it hangs on for a short while, but will eventually freeze up.
If I open a new project, I am able to assign a name and a location, but the timeline never reflects the name I give. It always views as "untitled". Also,"saving" as I make adjustments doesn't really save my work. I have to "save as" and overwrite each time or my work will be lost.
