SharePoint Designer crashes when switching to Advanced Mode

I recently was editing a post.aspx page that would crash whenever switching to Advanced Mode to edit the code.

I found a fix from http://morshemesh.blogspot.com/2011/08/how-to-fix-sharepoint-designer-crash.html that was pretty simple.

Go to File > Options > General > Page Editor Options > IntelliSense > Remove check from HTML, ASP.NET from both Auto Popup and Auto Insert.

That’s it. Now I can used Advanced Mode to edit without crashes using SharePoint Designer 2013.

Update: Another trick that works is to check out the file in Designer and then right click to edit the file in advanced mode right from the file browser.

  1. Whenever trying to switch to Advanced Mode via the ribbon – SPD crashes.

    What worked for me was:

    Right-click on the the form (or any other code file) to edit and the click on “Edit File in Advanced Mode). (NOT(!) by using the ribbon).

  2. This is what worked for me:

    Instead of opening the custom form and THEN switch to Advanced Mode, I closed the form, went back to the “Forms” view, right clicked the form and clicked on the ‘Edit File in Advanced Mode’ menu item.
