BeerSmith Ingrediants field blank!?!

I'm no computer wiz, so I'm looking for help. Recently, the ingredient box in the "Recipe View" page has gone blank! Every recipe, new and old. What's going on and how can I fix it?

Hi,
For BeerSmith 1.4, In most cases this is caused by a corrupt "newopts14.opts" file.

By default BeerSmith is in the "C:\Program Files\BeerSmith" directory.

However under Vista you may also have a "Compatibility files" directory that shows up on the toolbar when you go to the BeerSmith directory. This is where your data and the opts file likely lives. The full path to the compatibility diectory is: C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Pro gram Files\BeerSmith

where {USERNAME} is your login name for Vista/Win 7.

Note that on many systems this is a hidden/system directory which will not show up unless you go into the options for Windows file explorer and set it to show hidden/system files.

If you delete the newopts14.opts directory there you should be in business.
Brad
