V3.9B6: Splash screen does not close after startup

Post by The_Rock » Thu Aug 09, 2007 11:52 am

Most of the time, but not always, the splash screen stays on. There's no way to close it. Restarting newsleecher a lot of times until finally the splash screen dissapears by itself is the only thing that helps. :cry:

Known problem. You can turn off the splash screen under Options.

This happens if you have enabled the "Startup as Minimized" option in the Options>Interface screen, though rarely it can happen when disabled.

This has been added to the Known Bugs list

Try the option Help > About when it happens again. Perhaps (I haven't tried this, as I don't have this problem (yet)) the splash screen will disappear when you're done in the About window.
Fill in your bugs so NL will get better.

This is the type of things I wouldn't have thought of myself.... I've been at it for a long time now and had not thought of solving it this way -now It looks so darn obvious ! I like to share this interesting sites ibanez jem,stony coral with you.
