Calibre Freezes when adding new books
#1  tarektaha 11-17-2019, 09:29 AM
Never had this issue before but now every time i try to add a book, Calibre stays on the book adding screen.

I can't abort or cancel, the only way to close is killing the exe.

- Updated to last version - Same issue
- restart PC -- Same issue

Hello Kovi:
I think I did connect to a screen earlier. But now I've disconnected and am only using the laptop screen. still I can't see the "Hidden" Calibre screen to click on it. is there a way to reset calibre screen locations?

I've also uninstalled and reinstall it but still same thing?


Thank you!

This has become a recent issue (glitched: last window location) and is fairly easy to recover.

(standard Windows keystrokes)
With Calibre lost off screen (running)
Alt+space then M Then hit the Left arrow key a dozen or so times.
You should see an edge appear. Grab the titlebar and move it to where you want it.

The reason uninstall does not repair: Calibre does nor uninstall USER settings. That would seriously mess up all your configuration work
