Thread: fix a problem

    Unhappy fix a problem

    I have a problem with my numeric panels. Suddenly today, I have a white highlight over the text field. The only way to see the text in the box is to select it. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

    BTW: I've already tried uninstalling, and reinstalling....didn't work.

    Here's a pic of the prob.

    Not really sure about that one, how about messing with your Windows settings?

    Installing certain foreign language packs in windows xp (maybe other versions too) used to cause that sometimes. Have you installed any lately? I think I had the problem when I installed the Japanese language pack.

    Actually, I did just install a japanese pack.

    But now how do I fix it?

    Upgrade to 7.5C (if you're using 7.5, etc.), or remove the language pack. You didn't mention what version you had, but since the problem was fixed in 7.5C, I *assumed* the fix followed through 'til 8, and that you weren't talking about 8.

    (I will come back to LightWave3D when the support Linux. Linux isn't going anywhere, guys. Time to accept it!)

    my thought it that it might just be your default windows settings for appearance have been messed with. Also make sure the default font hasnt changed.

    i attached a pic of the desktop popup...
    right click on the desktop select "properties".
    select "appearance" on the tabs.
    select "advanced"
    find the context text field or whatever it might be called and change the back color... all windows color options can be messed with in here.

    alternately just try reset to a default...
    ie: select something else under the "windows and buttons:" pull tab on the appearance tab (as mentioned above)

    hope this helps...
