Solidworks 2016 Exploded view creation leads to closing Solidworks

Hi all,

I'm attempting to make exploded views to use for assembly purposes in manufacturing, parts catalogs, etc.  I'm in the edit explode step, and I can't exit out of it.  I can't save the drawing, I can't cancel.  If I hit escape, solidworks pops up the "The current operation cannot be interrupted or the document is not accessible at this time".  In effect, the only option that I foresee is to stop the application through task manager...ugghhhh!  That in turn creates the recovered drawings that I'd rather not deal with (of course I will instead of starting over completely, but it is just a hastle).  Has anyone else encountered this and if so, is there a way around it?
