Hello colleagues,

I open a termbase in Multiterm, and on the left side I see, as it should be, all the terms. However, when I try to add a new term or edit an existing one, the screen goes blank.

Does anyone recognize this problem? What can I do?

Thank you!

I've had this problem too, and resizing the program window has always solved it.

Resizing doesn't help Jun 28, 2007

Thanks for your suggestion, Steven - but it doesn't work... the strange thing is that I can click on "add" and "edit" - I just don't see anything in the window.

Does anyone have some other suggestion?

Press enter Jun 28, 2007

Hi, I know this problem too well!
I found out that I simply have to press enter and type in the term - even without seeing anything - press enter again and save. Then you can see it.

It's a problem with your computer's main memory. Multiterm takes lots of RAM and if there is not enough working memory the system goes berserk.
