What is the error you receive?


Also, are you able to create a new file and does this problem occur with the new file?  Maybe your file is corrupt and you'll need to determine if it is the file or the application that is the issue.

Start a new file, try to create a text box as you are attempting on this existing file...what happens?

Can you do this in a new file?  If so, there maybe something hanging on your in your current project.

Also, check your event logs to see if you can gain some clues on the crash.

Do you have enough Memory and HDD space on the machine you are running this from?  Have you tested it on a different machine?  And do your VS versions match? (i.e. was the file you are editing created on the same version that you are currently attempting to use?  If not, update them both).
