A bug when switching to/from Documentation

  • Hi guys,

    first of all - FreeMind is now an indispensable tool for me. I mean it. You should be really proud of such a product with commercial quality - and even better than some commercial programs..

    Still, there are some minor bugs. For example: version 0.7.2 beta is really cool. But when I'm opening my mindmap, then selecting Help->Documentation, almost half of my File menu disapperead (everything above 'Page setup'). When I'm swithcing back to my project after that, I see a blank gray screen - with messages like this in my cmd window. I'm using Windows XP.

    It would be great to fix this bug - however, it's still a very valuable project and currently I'll try not to use documentation feature very often :).

    Cheers, Victor.

    PS. The log from my 'cmd' window:
