Crash when importing
Seems-Like-A-Bug Report

PC = Windows 10
Tablet = Android 5.1
MSP = 1.4.7
Companion = 2.3.8

First time using MSP Companion in quite a while, installed latest version on new PC yesterday. It seems to work fine connencted to tablet via wi-fi. Manually dragging in a couple of new PDFs worked well. But...

I just tried to import 385 PDFs by selecting them then dragging that selection from File Explorer into MSP Companion. Docs say a dialog will open to select various things. That did not happened. Instead, a dialog opened then flashed quickly, again and again, I assume each flash was a single file. The dialog seemed to be where I would update fields, but it just kept flashing. Then after a couple of minutes, it all stopped, with Windows displaying "MobileSheetsProCompanion has stopped working". 

Clicking on MSP Connection, I see it has a long list of windows. Probably too many. Each window seems to be the new song dialog.  This raises questions:

Does it make sense for Companion to accept a "large" list to import (is 385 files a large list?), when that is not really viable or stable to do? Better would be for Companion to see the list is large and suggest another method, and/or avoid opening a new window for each file.

Or, is there a setting that would have prevented this? The docs for Companion say Batch Importing is almost identical to tablet, but I've done many more than 385 files directly on tablet without a problem. I don't think it opens a bunch of windows/dialogs. 

Restarted MSPC... In Settings I see a check mark by "Use Quick Import for multiple files", not mentioned in docs so I don't know what this affects. Also I see checked "Preview Files while editing", don't know if that affects Adding files via drag-and-drop. 

Companion docs lacks a section labeled Settings that explains that they do. There are scattered references to some of it, but no one place that explains all the Settings, and it seems that the above Settings are not explained at all. 

So, I need to know what I should do differently so drag-and-drop works reliably.
