Space bar stopped working...

...after entering about 50 bookmarks (in a music fakebook), and now starts right away when I resume work on this document. This occurred under Wine 1.62, Xubuntu 14.04. Crashed twice after this has occurred, not immediately, though. (Tried continuing using underscore instead of space, crashed about 3 minutes later.)

I have an install of this app PDF-XChange Viewer version 2.5 (Build 311.0) which crashes on my system when I attempt to save any changes (annotations etc) as many other people have reported. To solve this I installed current Wine Version 1.7.33 (32-bit) and PDF-XChange Viewer version 2.5 (Build 311.0) through PlayonLinux. The crash bug was solved but now experiencing some odd behaviour.
I use PDF-XChange Viewer to annotate PDFs a lot for research purposes and tend to use it alongside other software such as Zotero (www.zotero.org/) and Docear (www.docear.org/). Initially all of the annotations I made with PDF-XChange Viewer (highlighting/comments etc) would import nicely into these other software. However, I've noticed that since switching to 32-bit Wine my annotations no longer import into these other pieces of software - although they physically appear in the PDF and are saved within the PDF.
When running through Wine 64-bit that is installed directly in my system, PDF-XChange Viewer crashes (a lot) but the annotation functions works - i.e. I can import any annotations I make into the other software I use (even though everytime I save my changes PDF-XChange Viewer crashes)
Really puzzling. Could it be that I have missing libraries or something in Wine running on PlayonLinux?
My system is set-up is as follows:
Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit)
Recent (2014) distro's & Pdfxviewer

I've been using PdfXviewer intensively in Windows - and there it also proves to be instable, eg. when saving annotations and if more than one pdf-file is opened/viewed. So complains/restrictions noted here when working with PdfXviewer and recent Linux distro's might not have much to do with Linux/Wine, and so can't be remedied on this level.
