Menu are completely white, not updating

Several times in the last day, the menus in quicken have gone completely white. I can still select items, but I don't know what they are. Dialogs completely white too. If I kill the process and restart, its OK for awhile. I'm running R31.12 build

    Hi @Andy Howell,

    It sounds like you are referring to the drop-down menus - is that correct?  Are you having any similar problems with any other applications that have drop-down menus?

    Have you tried restarting your computer and Quicken to see if the problem continues/disappears?

    Which version of Windows are you running?  Are you using LARGE fonts?

    Get back to me and we'll go from there.

    Frank. Yes, the drop down menues. I'm running Windows 10. I'm not using large fonts. I tried those and they really messed up the layout. I wish quicken would allow scalable fonts. Its really showing its age. As am I, since its hard to see the small fonts!

    I was able to exit and restart OK. Its happened 3 or 4 times now. I'm making backups regularly, as I've spent a week manually entering statements and reconciling. It had been a couple years since I used Quicken. Online updates generally only covered the last few months.
