Strange Bug in Windows Version

Thanks for the reply. Sadly it isn't white text on a white background. And
auto-hilite is set. The same Rev stack builds perfectly under Mac OS X. It
did build perfectly on Windows XP too, but somewhere along the line
something has gone wrong. On XP no text items populate when the stack opens
- menus, buttons or labels. They populate OK when a script puts something
into them, but that isn't much use. The menus and buttons still work,
although you can't see the text. The menus are also very wide - far wider
than they would need to be to accommodate the text. The menus are built
using the "Menu Builder" so they should work...
I guess that the only option may be to go back to my last backup that
doesn't have the problem and copy the latest code into it. Unfortunately
there are a lot of changes... :-(.
