Closing one of two files gives me a black screen

Postby joliraja » Fri Jun 21, 2019 11:02 pm

If I have two files open in Write and close one in the Window menu, rather than showing the other file, I get a black screen like there are no files open. Not only that, in trying to get out of that situation, I somehow closed the good file with no prompting to save changes and I lost a lot. I guess the solution is use file/close but there's a booby trap there.

That looks like a graphics card driver problem. Please check with the card manufacturer's site that you have the latest driver for your card. Download and install the latest for your operating system if in doubt.

Ctrl S will always Save a modified file.
