    I've noticed this same behavior on two different PCs when upgrading to 2.0.0. I still haven't been able to resolve it (tried checking/unchecking, reinstalling, removing my Local Settings directory for WSJT-X.)

    Re Set the colors in Settings and things should be fine.

    Same situation here. Changing the settings does nothing to resolve the issue. Nor did removing and reinstalling the program.

    I thought I just found a fix, but I just scrolled up AFTER I posted it and saw K4RKY said "Re Set the colors in Settings and things should be fine"

    So I edited my post....

    I wish I read that before I typed all this, so I'll leave it.... Thanks K4RKY

    I went into the settings under "Colors" and unchecked them all until only the "New DXCC on band" and "New DXCC" are the ONLY boxes checked as far as "New" stuff goes.

    I still have the following checked:

    • Green"CQ"
    • Orange "My call"
    • Yellow "Transmitted message"
    As soon as I unchecked all "New" except what I mentioned, the country names started spelling out again!!

    Here's how I found this; I decided to uncheck the "Show DXCC, grid, and........." and I checked "Show Principal Prefix..." (when I did that my colors changed, THAT'S when I thought to uncheck most of the colors for everything New). I Then went back and UNCHECKED "Show Principal Prefix" and CHECKED "Show DXCC, grid...."

    The screenshot is of the EXACT moment I discovered it's fixed, hi hi

    I hope this helps!

    by the way...
    I came here looking for a fix and started clicking around in my settings and it started working, but I should say I calculated the code out mentally and just knew these changes would work hi hi.

    So uncheck all of the colors for "New" if you have this issue!

    Thanks! That seems to do the trick. I missed that too.

    Yes, that does seem to work for getting the country names to display. Thanks K3DBG. Good catch.

    [WSJT-X development team: one shouldn't have to mess around with colors like this to affect proper display of country names. File this as a likely WSJT-X software BUG to be resolved]

    having just installed WSJT-X 2 on a new computer, and getting back at it after a long absence, I appreciate pulling up this old thread very much :D !
