Comment statements can't be seen because they are white.

Hello,

 

I have SAS University Edition up and running. I just have a question about the comment statements. Their font colour is white, so I can't actually see them. Is there a way to change the colour to green like it normally is so I can actually read them? You can see in the two screenshots I have that the comments are there and I can see them when I highlight them, but when they are not highlighted I can't see them because they are the same colour as the background.

 

Thanks in advance,

Greg

I think that's a browser issue. Try using SAS UE in Chrome or Firefox.

I was actually originally running it in Firefox when I had the problem. I tried it on the Ubuntu Web Browser just because that was already on the computer and SAS worked as it is supposed to. I will try to get it functioning properly in Firefox but I don't really care that much if I have to use another browser. Just as long as it is working right.

 

Thanks a lot!

Yeah, its annoying. I've also seen where it does that to the code - usually after cutting and pasting information around.

So, it's a bug in SAS then not a setting that I can change or a problem with the browser?

Not a setting AFAIK, I guess a bug is a good characterization.

Ok. Sounds like it isn't worth spending too much time trying to get it to work in Firefox if it is working fine elsewhere. Thanks!
