TOPIC: Checkmate's Prefs now set to "Disable Testing"

Checkmate's Prefs now set to "Disable Testing" 25 Aug 2016 19:26 #7517

For no apparent reason, Checkmate (1.1.5) stopped working; the icon now longer appears in the top menu.

I've opened the Checkmate Prefs pane and saw that the "Disable Testing" button was selected, however, I never manually made that selection. I tried to click the "Allow Testing" selection but it reverted to "Disable." In the Test Scheduling window, everything is grayed out and set to default values.

What might I have done to disable Checkmate?

Why can't I easily and intuitively reset the preference to "Allow Testing"?

Thanks.

If you can get the Preferences set to show the Checkmate icon in the menu bar, do that. Then, If you hold down the Option key, and click the Checkmate icon in the menu bar, you can enable testing in Checkmate. We do not want to make it easy to turn the tests off. People could turn the tests off without being aware that they had done that.

If you cannot get the Preferences to show the Checkmate icon in the menu bar, the easiest solution would be to download the installer from your Available Downloads, at the bottom of your My Acount page (linked above) and then reinstall the program.
