Known issues and solutions

Can't see navigation buttons at the bottom of the Statistics for the Terrified screen
This occurs on some laptops where the vertical space available only just fits the software. Your Windows Taskbar may therefore sit over the lower edge of the software, obscuring your view.
Solution 1: The taskbar
Solution 2: Screen resolution
Some text is running over other text and/or graphical displays
This sometimes happens if you have 'Large fonts' specified in your Windows Display Properties.
Normal curves are not displayed in graphs
This sometimes happens when the default language setting is to a language other than English.
