Whenever I right click or Click on the File Menu (or any other Menu item at the top), the text in the resulting menu is invisible. If I randomly click somewhere within resulting menu the corresponding action does get executed. This is frustrating as I can't see what I am clicking on.

Please help ASAP. As this prevents me from performing a lot of actions within OneNote 2007.

Please see the attachment for more detailed information.

This usually means that you've run low on GDI resources. Did you try rebooting your computer and starting OneNote fresh?

Thank you,

It's funny. I had already rebooted twice. I can't explain it logically. It now works fine the 3rd time. I guess for me, it is 3 times a charm:))

OK--but this tells me that you are reaching some sort of "critical mass" of resource usage on your computer. Usually this means you're running too many Windows apps at the same time. Try to reduce the number of running programs or take note of what's running if this problem reappears and try to determine whether it might be correlated with the number/size of the apps you're running simultaneously.

Thank you for the points.
