unclear code shortage

Hi,
after version 1.6.8 (not sure) I can see "shortages" in my code instead library name (like on picture). The code become unclear, chaotic with this.

Can anyone advice me what to do to disable that, please?

Nobody knows? :o

I certainly don't.

But based on nobody else stepping forward.

Is there a particular reason to stay on IDE 1.6.8 when 1.6.12 has been available and quite stable for some time ?

Rather than a screen shot snippet of code post the whole sketch to see if anyone can replicate it ?
If you do then PLEASE use code tags ( </> )

Hi Bob,
thanks for reply..

my problem is in newer release then 1.6.8 - so 1.6.8 is OK and in newer releases is not OK

It is not problem of sketch code.. There is something wrong in IDE or system or settings or something like that.. I tried reinstall IDE (all version from 1.6.8 to newest) and it works right only in 1.6.8. I suspect Windows (W7) but really don´t want reinstal whole system. Maybe I can try virtual.. :slight_smile:

Can you delete those unexpected characters from your sketch?

yes, i can.. but those unexpected characters are names of libraries.. on one place

Have you tried Tools->Fix Encoding & Reload?

Yes.. no change :confused:

Well... When in doubt, blame crud in the Arduino15 directory.

A bunch of people have had IDE 1.6.x problems, including IDE crashes and bizarre compile errors, when they had a previous 1.5.x/1.6.x installation. At least some of those problems seem to be caused by incompatible executables and preference files that the IDE saves outside the IDE installation directory. Perhaps that is what is causing your particular problem. In such cases it appears that the fix is to delete or rename the old "Arduino15" directory and re-install 1.6.x.
On Mac OS X:
/Users/(username)/Library/Arduino15 (a.k.a. ~/Library/Arduino15)
(Note: The 'Library' folder is greyed out in Finder. The folder can't be opened with a double-click. To browse the contents of 'Library', ctrl-click on it and select "Open in New Tab" from the pop-up menu.)
On Windows delete or rename both:
Arduino IDE 1.6.5r5 and previous: C:\Users(username)\AppData\Roaming\Arduino15
Arduino IDE 1.6.6 and later: C:\Users(username)\AppData\Local\Arduino15
On Linux:
/home/(username)/.arduino15 (a.k.a. ~/.arduino15)
(Note: file/folder names starting with '.' are not normally shown in directory listings. Use 'ls -a' to get a directory listing that includes the hidden files.)
