Help on crashing

Hi, I’ve installed it, I’m loving it because of it’s simplicity, beautiful interface and everything. But I am hating it because it crashes every 5 to 10 minutes or so. I don’t know why. Information shown after crash is not readable for normal human beeing. Why this is not working as it should? I mean Pages are working without any problems, Numbers too? Why iBook Author isn’t? Why is this crash always happening? Has anyone the same problem with it?
By the way - my configuration is Mac Book Air, 13’’, 4 GB RAM, i5.

W niebo wziety

Po 15minutach uzywania tego programu stwierdzam ze jest on swietny. Porownujac go do wytworu Microsoftu czyli do Office nawet wersji 2011 Jest miliard razy lepszy iBooks Author, ja wiem ze iba to nie word ani power point ale poprostu jest swietny, zapisuje programy w pdfie wygladaja jak ksiazki bo takie tez jest przeznaczenie tego programu, ale pisanie w nim projektow do liceum czy studia jest banalnie proste. Polecam wszystkim ktorzy chca napisac cos i to szybko. Ksiazek nie zamierzam pisac ale wszelkie projekty i tym podobne mozna swietnie w tym programie utworzyc. Nie trzeba dodawac ramki kombinowac jak to w przypadku worda czy openOffica tylko automatycznie program sie domysla "aha wstawia zdjecie wiec bedzie chcial napisac u gory tytul oraz na dole źródło no to mu to ułatwimy" w innych programach mi tego brakuje.

Wiem wiem porownywanie dwoch roznych programow ale czy zastosowania nie maja podobnego ? Warto pobrac nie bedziecie zalowac na milion procent ;)
