I'm not saying Atlantis is programmed in Delphi or not.

If the welfare and stability of Atlantis would be of great importance to me (it is, but only more so in your case I would imagine, given the history you mentioned) I would go to great lengths to ensure that a reproducible error could be sorted out, especially if I would be *the only one* being able ...

Just to be sure: I contended you could not produce that av error at will, but you maintained you could. And the moment I indicated that this would be extremely useful for the programmers, it suddenly doesn't work anymore on your end. Is that right?

I hope 100% you are not involved in the programming aspect of things :) So Robert, you are saying you have been this intensely involved in Atlantis, and yet when you can produce a reported error *at will*, you then thought it was a good time to change the operating system state you could produce the...

As I understand, you get the error only at program launch. It happens both at program launch, as well as at program uninstall. When it occurs at program launch, it of course also happens if I then try to launch via an associated document. I have not experienced an Atlantis AV error based purely on ...

I would recommend to debug the program, if you're capable. Look at what it points to when the error occurs and see if there is an issue in the code there.

I said it was elusive because the access violation both occurred during normal usage (as in, starting up Atlantis via its shortcut) -- as well as when uninstalling it -- but always quite unpredictably. I imagine you can't reproduce that error each time, despite file compression being activated. It j...

No, I do not have file compression on any of my installs or systems. And I doubt that file compression is the actual cause of the occurrence of that error on your end, either -- for this is how elusive it is acting every time... Coincidence does not equal cause. I'm very well aware of all such thing...

To be able to fix any bug in any application, the developers must be able to reproduce the steps as described by end-users. Bugs that cannot be reproduced are quintessentially idiosyncratic. Your access violations won’t be stopped until the developers can reproduce them on their own system. Develop...

Now the INI file that you sent was merely a capture of your current Atlantis settings. That INI file won’t change until you overwrite it with a new version created from the "Tools |Options…" dialog. What should be abundantly clear by now is that these errors seem to occur at random. The o...

Robert, I can see you have somewhat of a chip on your shoulder and that is okay.

I've emailed the .ini file to you. To note, this .ini file is based on a clean install of Atlantis; I then configured the application as I wanted and saved the .ini file. I then uninstalled Atlantis and this is when the access violation error occurred.

Thank you!

Amazing how that is so obvious to you, since that is the method I used in the beginning when Atlantis got the redesigned interface. Only because I started experiencing the access violation error did I take it upon myself to save the actual files to replace them as that restores those settings, too. ...

However, the Atlantis hyphenation module has currently no support for hyphenation of the “ZERO WIDTH NON-JOINER” character. But if you open a document created in Atlantis in MS Word, the “ZERO WIDTH NON-JOINER” ...
