• This was a big surprise...

    I have no idea how this started or how to solve it. I wanted to post it here before reinstall izzy.
    check it out in the attach!

    Wow that's pretty cool - erm..... no idea how this has happened!

  • That's exciting!

    This is only a guess, but:

    See the first attached image - click on the circled keyboard icon to select the language you'd like.

    If that doesn't work, see the second attached image (in control panel).

    Hope this helps!

  • Nein!

    My language configuration is as always was.
    This arabic thing is happening just in Isadora. weird huh?

  • Uh, wow. Let me know if the reinstall helps. That is incredibly weird.

  • I uninstalled it and installed 1.5.3f14

    now this is what I see when I do right click (attach)


  • what is going on inside the folder "TroikaTronix", that is inside of C:\Documents and Settings\leo\Datos de programa\TroikaTronix

    and that it is not possible to erase?

  • I came back to 1.3.0f31

    still in arabic...

  • I also noticed the same kind of problem (Windows XP too). Not arabic but a weird font, so I suppose it's a font problem, not a language problem.

    I'll post a screenshot as soon as I get my hands on this computer.

  • Here it is... d06221-weirdfont.jpg

  • That is certanly much easier to understand that arabic!!!!

    I uninstalled it several times and installed different versions, but still have problems with right click. There is still something that provoques this and it is not being solved by reinstallations.
    mark? how to complete delete every data stored by isadora in order to perform a fully new installation?

  • Dear Camilozk,

    Well, I can tell you that reinstalling is not going to solve this bug. This is something wrong with the way I programmed Isadora, not a setting in a preference file, etc.

    @DusX have you had any chance to repro this problem?

    I will look into the code for the menu drawing stuff and see what I can find out.

    Best Wishes,

  • Dear All,

    I think I might have found the problem -- a variable that would be uninitialized if the system did not correctly report a default menu font; this would result in a potentially random font being chosen for the menus. I've got a version I'll get to @camilozk to see if ti solves the problem for him.


  • Tech Staff

    great.. I was not able to reproduce this locally on any of my systems.

  • still the white horizontal bar mark... 93473d-untitled-1.jpg

  • Can you be specific?

    1) Is the font problem fixed?
    2) Do any items show up in the menu?
    3) Is this left after you release the mouse button?

  • the font problem was replaced with what you see in the screen. an horizontal white bar, no items. just this.

    it appears when you release the right click mouse button, as if it was the "right click menu"

  • you can see the first example of this from when I installed 1.5.3f14 the 22nd of april and I also posted it


  • Dear @camilozk,

    Well, the big problem for me is that I don't have any way to try this on XP. Without being able to work on the native operating system, I'm not sure how I can solve this.
    I guess I'll take another look and see if can make another guess.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Best Wishes,

  • I understand mark.

    the thing is that everything was working ok in the past, and suddenly something change. now even if I go back to previous releases, or newer releases, I always have the problem.
    I will be waiting for some news. thanks
