I just began to notice that some of my buttons don't work, and cause TD to freeze on the Settings screen.  When I push particular buttons, it causes this behavior.  I can only escape by using the Windows task bar to close the program.  Interestingly enough, I can still run a tournament (I usually will copy a previous tournament, then reset it); it seems to be buttons involved with set-up things.

I went through the entire program to find the offending buttons, and here is a list of what freezes TD up:

Game Tab:  Quick start, Fixed Rake
Rounds Tab:  New Round, New Break
Prizes Tab:  New Prize, Sort Prizes, Chops, New, Export
Tables Tab:  New, Export
Layout Tab:  Layout Controls: Clear, New, Built-in, Import/Export, Settings Screen Controls: ALL  Other: Alerts
Events Tab:  New Sound, Import Sound, New Event, Sort Sounds, Sort Events, New
Chips Tab:  New Chip, New Chipset, New
Rules Tab:  New
Database Tab:  Find Player, Delete Players, New League, Edit Seasons, Restore
Stats Tab:  View
Preferences Tab:  Reset, Status Message, Category, Rakes, New Rake
Hotkeys Tab:  Reset Hotkeys

It's possible I might have even missed some, but this is what I came across so far.

I checked the other thread about the other major problem that was occurring earlier last year and applied the fixes as suggested, and I also have Auto Update enabled.

Anyone come across this before that might be able to help?

Start the software.  Once at the Settings window, press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F12.  This will recenter ALL dialogs on the main display and turn off the preference that saves dialog locations, opening all dialogs on the main display again.

I'm guessing that you've been using the software with a second display connected.  Some dialogs were opening on the other display.  They still are, only that display is no longer connected, so they're basically just opening "off screen", which makes it appear as if the software is locked up (you just can't see the dialog you're supposed to be interacting with).

You are correct, sir.  I sometimes use a secondary display, depending on where we are playing, as we are a touring league.  Your fix did the trick.

Thanks, as always, for the support!
