What do I do if Proclaim crashes?

If Proclaim has closed abruptly or hangs indefinitely, you may have experienced a crash. Some crashes occur because of an underlying issue with Proclaim, while others happen as a one-off random event. If the app has only crashed once and works normally afterward, it may have crashed for reasons other than those related to Proclaim. The steps in this article are intended for anyone who is experiencing repeated crashes in Proclaim.
