SNAP Blockstyler Error


I have been getting the following error: 

Unhandled exception encountered in call back automation code.

 This seems to occur if I exit out of the dialog, re-enter the dialog, and then click either OK or apply. If I switch to the modeling application and back to the drafting application, the file will run with no errors.

The NX log shows:

&MACRO OK 0 0 ! OK Callback  
*** EXCEPTION: Error code  3520041 in line 78 of D:\workdir\Reference\NX903_4\src\part\no\ind\jax_property_container.cxx at Thu May 28 10:23:43 2015 Eastern Daylight Time
+++ Property "BlockID" does not exist for block name ""

Any thought to what I did wrong?
