Any suggestions?

    When you open Help from the menubar do you get a blank page as well?

    We're in the same boat re the missing Glossary. We'd downloaded the simple piano lesson, and all was well, except when we clicked on the Glossary tab we got, just like Folbo,

    ... a blank screen with the message 'missing file'.

    Help, from the menu bar, works.

    Stumped.

    No it isn't !!!
    The GB Glossary is a virtual booklet with much more info in it.

    I thought it was a bit on the skimpy side. Thanks for the info.

    I take it you are able to get the full glossary to come up from within a GB lesson?

    The hunt continues.

    I can't se what the image might be in your post, Chris. There's a blue box with a question mark in it, to the right of "No it isn't".

    Ha!

    Thanks, Chris. I hadn't looked at that thread yet today.

    For those who haven't yet got a usable Glossary:

    I created another User Account, and from within that account, there is a Glossary accessible from the Glossary tab in the fullscreen lesson window. It looks, as described by Chris in another forum, like "a smart spiral bound notebook type interface with lots of headings".

    Phew! I'd still be interested in getting the Glossary function working in the main account. I'll ask elsewhere a general question about this, and report back if anything comes up.

    I started another thread about this in the Snow Leopard > Account and login forum, since it seemed to be a fault with the account rather than GB. The thread's title is 'Tracking down culprit file'.

    Abrody was a great help. I followed his suggestions. What I did was painstakingly slow and detailed, but I guess I didn't have to do everything I did - I'd just got my dander up and was in Wile E Coyote mode with it all.

    As of now, I have a new Admin account plus a new User account, and in each of them, the Glossary in GB '11 is working perfectly. I still do not know, however what was causing the original problem, and probably won't find out either.

    Did anybody ever get to the bottom of this?  I now have the same problem plus, in "Chord Trainer", if I try to increase the Master Volume Control (bottom right of the screen underneath the virtual fret board) from zero upwards GB crashes on me.

     

    I tried reinstalling GB and got a fright when it broke iPhoto somehow, but this didn't fix anything.  Managed to get iPhoto working again though.
