"About" is not displayed correctly

Post by Macarena »

The "About" window / pop-up is not displayed correctly, not visible at all.

Hi,
Delete/Rename Persistent.json and start MM5 again.

To confirm, it shows fine here on 2266.

Thank you, dear Peke, for the suggestion. I had to delete also the persistent.json.bck to rebuild the "interface". Rebuilding helped and the "About" page is showing up with all information.

FYI, the issue was also present in build 2267

Hi,
Strange, we tried several times to replicate corruption of persistent.json without success. Can you please try to find or in which cases MM5 corrupts it after restart?

After you removed persistent.json in build 2266?

No, update has been performed first from 2266 to 2267. Issues persisted. Then the persistent.json had been removed.

Here is the removed json file http://www.mediafire.com/file/ppfvcz8ee ... .json/file

p.s. I'm sorry for the delay in response.

Then today, after few days of inactivity with MM5, I ran into a very similar issue. The error message was distorted, see http://www.mediafire.com/view/a5v5hzbgm ... g.png/file

Then I updated to 2268. The issue persisted. And I remembered the previous issue with the About window. persistent.json removed, the error window is readable. (The content of the error window is irrelevant now.) So here is another "corrupted" json.

I often attach an external monitor to the laptop (home and office environment) and it resembles a wrong rescaling, when going form one monitor to another.

Issue with some dialog windows shrunk to this minimum size should be already fixed, fix will be included in the next release.
