Re: Sometimes red cross/lines in fieldcontent

This one has been around for a while and has to do with a diminishing pool of system resources.  Happens frequently on machines with less RAM or when processor intensive.  Restarting ACT makes it go away.  Also seems to happen less frequently with frequent reboots.
