Red Notebook displays only squares

Asked by Petar on 2018-04-06

Hello everyone,

I have been using Red Notebook for many years and I enjoy the program very much. However, since a couple of months I wasnt able to use it at all. All text is now displayed as squares and I dont know why. I tried reinstalling RN but that didnt help.

My background information:

I am running RN from a USB-Stick using Portable RN (https://portableapps.com/apps/office/rednotebook_portable)
The version I am running is 2.3.
I use Windows 7 with all updated patches.
Other portable apps work just fine.
I dont have that problem with any other program.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be? When I click on search items, I can find my entries, so the data seems to be there, but instead of the text... squares only.

Thank you for your attention and your dedication to this nice program!

Do you have the same problem with the non-portable version?

I dont know, since I also dont know wheter or not I can use my old database with a non-portable version. Should I check this out?

Alright, I installed the non-portable Version and it works fine (after a restart of my computer). So what next?

Could you please report this to the guys from portableapps.com?

Sure thing.
