FCP X - anyone else finding it a bit glitchy?

I've no interest in sparking off a debate about FCP X vs FCP7 - I think that one's been well and truly done to death! As someone with zero know-how re video editing before June this year it's made a lot of sense for me to embrace FCP X as I've had nothing to unlearn. That said I'm finding the app fairly glitchy. Nothing really impossible to workaround - most of my problems go away when I make sure I only open the inspector when I really have to and close it before selecting anything else. In other words the way the inspector updates what its showing is working very poorly and has caused numerous beachball crashes. Fortunately FCPX's auto save has meant I haven't lost too much work, but it is frustrating none the less. I've been excusing this on the basis of it being essentially a version 1 release, but it's occurred to me that maybe this is unique to me? If it is then obviously I can try a fresh install or problem solve in various other ways. But if it's a general problem then like everyone else I'll just have to workround it and wait (impatiently!) for 10.1! cheersReply
