Except a long line at the bottom of the screen (something like <fontformat color= "0#0#0" highlight="0#0#0" etc). Everything else seems to be normal. Does anyone know what is happening?

I am unsure how to get to the state where no segment is selected in the document, so this knowledge hasn't helped me.

Thanks
