Re: Text not updated/viewable

Thanks for the promp reply and I do appreciate your feedback. However, try this : create a text file with some synopsis . Convert it to folder. At this point I can see the synopsis but not the text (click some other binder item and come back to the folder). They only way for me to make the text view...

Re: existing and new project error

SOLVED: Thanks to the Wiki I found out that the problem was disabling of "essential" fonts that could create problems in other programs. After enabling them, the project was there but in 'recovered' form with structure lost !!! I would have been in a big mess if I was not using Time Machin...
