No text visible, all just little boxes

Asked by Eric Sakara on 2020-07-28

On my desktop computer all text is replaced by little boxes. I tried version 2.18. I also tried a fallback to 2.15. All the same. If I go into EDIT mode then text is visible (but calendar and menu bar are boxes). In preview mode just boxes. Everything works fine on my laptop running 2.15.

I assume it is a conflict with Windows 10 Pro and Rednotebook. No other programs are affected. My laptop is Windows 10 Home. All windows programs and patches are up to date. Also if I do a cut from RNB and paste into Notetab Light everything looks fine. Only RedNotebook is screwed up.

I also have screenshot but don't know how to paste it here.

Unfortunately I cannot test it right now. My desktop computer is torn apart
for a 'brain' transplant (new mobo, cpu, gpu and RAM).

I should have it tested by the weekend. I will get back to you then.

So version 1.15 works on my desktop.

BUT that doesn't answer the basic question of why v2.18 doesn't work. I would prefer not to be running with obsolete programs.

I agree. However, it might take a while before I'm able to upgrade the underlying libraries on Windows, which hopefully fixes the issue you're facing.

Not a complete solution but the best for now. I hope a fuller fix comes some time in the future.
