Beta 13 footer is black


The footer bar displaying elapsed time , meridian flip time, recovery etc is blank and black. Minimising and maximising Windows doesn’t rectify. Used in Windows 7.


Same. It’s been that way for awhile.


Really? I can’t reproduce this. Can anyone give me a screen shot?


I have seen this intermittently for a long time, perhaps in 2.3 as well as 2.4. I have never found a way to reliably reproduce it so have never filed a bug report.

Here is a workaround: on the menu there is an option with a checkbox to enable/disable the status bar. If you toggle that option off and back on the status bar will go back to normal.



Never seen a black bar but status text does flicker in the latest release, I access via RDP so may be that causing it.


I only access via rdp or Teamviewer too. Could be the problem.

Thanks for the doc!


nope. I get it right there on the same pc.



Usually it shows up on the footer.


Thanks Chris. Is that from Beta 12, 13 or 14?

Also… is anyone seeing this in Windows 8 or does it seem to be isolated to Win 7?


The machine I run SGP on and see the problem on is Windows 7, have not tried on Win 8.



It’s from beta 14.
