Solidworks crashes when ctrl copying parts in assembly

To whom it may concern,


When assembly modeling, I often like to use the ctrl key to copy parts that are already existing in my assembly. When working properly, this command is able to save a lot of time and effort, but unfortunately, this command causes SolidWorks to crash almost every time I try and use it. This has happened in numerous assemblies that I have worked with and doesn't seem to be related to a specific assembly. It crashes about 3-8 times a day depending on what kind of work I'm doing. It's a pretty frustrating problem that has caused me to lose many hours of work over the past few months. Is there any known way to solve this problem?
