Dear folks,

I'm sure this will turn out to be one of those "is it plugged in?" problems, but ...

I'm running Nisus 6 under OS 9. Suddenly, for no reason that I can discern, I'm getting a blank gray window where the catalog window should be. I've tried the following:

1) Throwing away the four Nisus preference files that I could find in the system Preferences folder (Nisus grammar.prf, Nisus Font Menu Cache, Nisus Writer 6 Word Services, and Nisus Writer 6 Preferences).

2) Launching an earlierversion of to the Nisus 6 executable that I had archived on my hard drive (to check to see if the executable I was running had gotten corrupted).

3) Restarting the machine with only Mac OS extensions on (to check for a third-party conflict).

4) Changing my Nisus preferences so that the catalog window did not automatically open up when I launched the program (and trying to open it up manually from the File menu.

None of these things work. I've run out of clever ideas. Did I miss a preference somewhere? Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Dear Folks,

Oh, never mind.

Booted up my PowerBook to check messages this morning, launched Nisus, and guess what?

Yeah, the catalog's back.

I swear I did nothing between yesterday and today. And I've spent three days jiggering settings, reloading old versions, reinstalling system components, etc., with no effect.

I musta scared it when I posted here. <wry smile>

Anyway, problem gone, but if someone could advise me why it might have happened in the first place, I'd be mighty grateful.

Dear folks,

Sigh, I spoke too soon. The problem is back: the catalog window is just a blank gray window, with no files listed.

I have no idea what is going on! Can anyone help?!
