  • Poorly designed or incompatible extensions can cause problems with your application, including make it crash etc. If you encounter strange problems relating to parts of the app no longer working, the app not starting, windows with strange or distorted appearance, degraded performance, etc, you may be suffering from Extension or Theme trouble. Restart the app in Safe Mode. On Windows, start using the "Safe Mode" shortcut created in your Start menu or by running quartica.exe -safe-mode. On Linux, start with ./quartica -safe-mode and on Mac OS X, run:

    cd /Applications/quartica.app/Contents/MacOS/
    ./quartica-bin -safe-mode

    When started in Safe Mode all extensions are disabled and the Default theme is used. Disable the Extension/Theme that is causing trouble and then start normally.
