When you launch Phenote (especially the first time) it takes a long time to come up, because it's downloading ontologies. Should pop up a box saying "Downloading ontologies--this make take a while" while downloading ontologies, so it's clear to user that something's happening and Phenote's not broken.

    Starting with v1.7-beta1, it now does show such a box. Unfortunately, I can't get it
    to put anything inside the dialog box until it's done downloading the ontology files (by which point it's
    pointless), but at least it now shows SOMETHING so that new Phenote users don't think it's crashed.

    I have added a new bug report about the splash screen not coming up (#2946847).
