I have been using TexMaker for one year and everything was pretty smooth until recently. Right now as long as there is a figure in the pdf, when I compile the file (successfully) and scroll down to that figure, the whole program freezes and never responds again. However, the pdf files themselves are fine and can be opened using any pdf reader. It happens to any manuscript with any type of figure, despite the fact that I could open all of them before. When there is no figure, or there is a figure at the end of the paper and I don't scroll to the figure, everything seems to be fine. I tried deleting the software (and the preference file) and installed a newer version, but it did not work.
I didn't do anything serious(that I can remember) to my system before this problem came up. I am using a Windows 8 Pro (upgraded from Win 7 a long time ago), with Adobe Reader 11. Does anyone know where the problem is? Thanks a lot!
