Problematic Story Editor glitch

I'm experiencing an issue in Story Editor that's becoming increasingly problematic.


Basically, the SE window is cutting-off text at the right of tht window. This means that I can't use it for Find / Replace operations, as the highlighted text isn't showing. Resizing the window doesn't help, and I've tried all manner of different fonts to no avail. Resizing the left-hand portion (where styles are shown) doesn't help either, with text being clipped even when it's hidden.


I'm currently editing a book, and as I can't see all the text, I'm going to have to flow text throughout the entire book and use Find / Replace in layout mode, which wastes valuable project time, amongst other things.


Does anyone else have this issue, or a fix?


*UPDATE* This doesn't appear to happen with a single document open, but when I have multiple book file documents open.

    This is the sort of thing that trashing the prefs often solves. See Replace Your Preferences

    Reboot and turn off Isolator before you launch ID...


    Try a new user account as a test. That will tell you if it's the user or something else.
