Re: Disappearing Window

Well, I take that back. I have solved my own problem. There appears to be a miss-match when doing 'In Use' only updates. I have just done a full system update (using the up-date feature of FC8) and the problem has gone away. Yeh. :D

Hi Steve

Many thanks for the test files, they defiantly reveal the problems I had with FC7. However, FC8 is okay for me.
