Symptoms of problem:

Upon selection of a region of interest, program stops working, either not responding or crashing.

DOS window error messages: 

  • Operation terminated by user during pause (line 21) In newROI_quest
  • Undefined function or method ‘figure1_KeyPressFcn’ for input arguments of type ‘struct’.
  • Error while evaluating figure KeyPressFcn – Segmentation violation detected

Source of problem:  

automatic translation software such as 有道首页 (Youdao Dictionary) and 金山词霸 (PowerWord)

Solution to problem: 

Temporarily disable the translation software while performing a ROI selection

We will be working to make our software compatible with these sorts of translation programs in the future, as well as improving our own internationalization.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
