Thanks for the report.

A crash has previously been reported on Mac and Windows when the macro includes "Export to MP3".
Could you test if the crash still occurs if:
  • You remove the "Export to MP3" step
  • If you replace "Export to MP3" with some other export
  • If you remove or replace the other effects from the macro to determine if the export step is the problem.

Thanks for reporting back Stuart - much appreciated.

Just be aware that the transition to Macros is still very much a work-in-progress - there are still a few" wrinkles" we have to iron out ...
