When editing an image in Slide View, you may encounter an Unhandled Exception error stating that a "Parameter is not valid".  This can occur when you perform both of the following actions on the same image in this specific order:

  1. Go to the Format tab, and select Flip or Rotate.
  2. Go to the Format tab, and select Set Transparent Color from the Recolor drop-down list.

This is a known issue.  You can avoid this issue by reversing the order of the above events.  Set the transparent color, and then flip or rotate the image.
