Expanded Menus are blank on second opening and random "blankness" in other fields / pages

While using Xamarin Studio, when I open a menu for the first time it shows all the menu options. However on opening the menu a second time it appears blank.
The issue is not limited to menu's either as random fields and in some cases code pages are blank on opening intermittently.

I was told this was resolved in 2.0.3 but the issue persists

I am running on:

  • Win 8
  • Intel HD 4000 GPU
  • Intel Core i7
  • 4gb Ram

Closing Xamarin Studio and reopening it resolves the problem (at least until the menu is opened for a second time again)

    This sounds like bug 11063 which seems to be caused by the GTK# installation being corrupted somehow. Could you please try removing GTK# then re-installing it from

  • Interestingly when I went to uninstall GTK# there were two versions installed, 2.12.10 & 2.12.20.
    I uninstalled them both to be on the safe side and installed the 2.12.20 version from the link above again.

    Thankfully that seems to have cleared the issue. Thanks
