Summary0015497: Windows 10 Theme - Failure to Open
DescriptionThe problem is what the Readme file appears to refer to : "If you encounter any strange behaviour, like no document appearing on screen, use the “Windows Classic“ theme. There is a known Qt issue with custom themes causing document loading problems. This is especially true with third party themes." Initially after the installation, the programme worked just fine with no issues. After closing Scribus and opening again, the Scribus icon for an open document appears in the taskbar and is active showing a mini image of the document content when the pointer hovers over it but the document does not open up. I have encountered the same problem with the earlier versions. With some versions, re-installing the programme sorted the issue until the next re-opening. This does not help with 1.5.4 though. Tried to change the Windows theme - does not help.
TagsNo tags attached.

... problem fixed in part by running a 3rd party uninstaller before re-installing the programme - suppose this would work till the next re-opening of Scribus. Are there any files/settings that can be blocked before closing the programme so that they don't prevent it from re-opening?
