if amaya hangs, shoot screen

George Herson

Amaya 11.4.4 on Mac OS X 10.8.4 seems to have alot of problems updating display of text as soon as I start to rearrange it.  Page up and Page down will clear the problem, until my next rearrangement. :-)

But I'm writing because Amaya appeared to hit an infinite loop after I entered a dozen or so control-spaces.  I sent Amaya different signals with Activity Monitor - View - Send Signal to Process to try and get its attention but had no luck until SIGQUIT ended it.  When I restarted Amaya, it asked me if I would like to load backup documents.  Great, except for one thing: there was no way to answer the question.  I tried everything.  Fortunately, I'd taken a screenshot of the screen before handing Amaya the SIGQUIT with OS X's Grab and saved it to file.  I uploaded the resulting .TIFF to http://www.onlineocr.net/ and it did a great job recognizing its text so i could paste it back into a renewed Amaya. 

Please give the OS X platform more loving.
