Glitch in my OSCAR
#1
Glitch in my OSCAR
   
For a few days now in OSCARS's graph info all the numbers and letters are showing up as rectangles and squiggles.

I would like to know how to solve this without losing data.  Thank you.

Looks like a font problem. Go to File/Preferences/Appearance and select fonts that are normal for your system.

RE: Glitch in my OSCAR
I remember seeing the font page but didn't touch anything intentionally.  Where could I see the original font settings to check them?

What would be the consequences of re installing OSCAR?



And as a first time poster and new CPAPer, thanks for all you and this board do to help ease us through the unknowns.

Reinstalling OSCAR will not replace your data files.  Go to File > Preferences > Appearance and change your font selection.

What OS are you using? The "original" font settings are dynamic, depending on the OS and installed fonts. It should always be safe to set the fonts to Helvetica as that font is available on almost every OS.

I did as you suggested and yes the top font had been changed to Gothic.  Changed it back and it's all good now.

Thanks for your help and knowledge.

I went and looked at my wife's font settings and found mine were different. I really don't remember fooling with them.
Thank you.
