trace bit map option stopped working again. removed and reinstalled the program and still didn't fix it.

Asked by Cindy Wettroth on 2017-12-12

Once again the trace bitmap option has stopped working. I import the image and then click trace bitmap and nothing happens, the pop up box does not show up and nothing traces.

In the past if i removed the program and reinstalled it that would fix the problem. Not this time, and it's been weeks. Very frustrating :(

Take a look into the dock at the right. Is there a minimized dialog?

It should be either some vertical text, a symbol, or a symbol and text. It may also be that the dialog is already open, but you need to scroll down in the dock to find it. And lastly, it may be that you need to close a couple of dialogs in the dock to make the icon for the 'Trace Bitmap' dialog appear.

(or, if you're on a Mac with multiple monitors, dialogs may open offscreen - but that would happen right from the start, I think...)

Can you help with this problem?
