    Everytime I try to start a new project, the 'New Project' screen comes up blank.  Nothing, not a text box, not an icon, not a click button, nothing.  So I have tried three times now installing and uninstalling Mapper.  Each time the same result.  I have looked online for solutions and have come up blank.  Any suggestions?  Thanks

    Hi, 

    The screenshot that you share is from Pix4Dmapper while this article is about creating a project in Pix4Dmatic. 

    Please make sure that the drivers of your GPU are updated. 
    Would you kindly also check if your computer meets the recommended system requirements?

    Pix4Dmapper is tested, optimized, and supported only on Windows 10. Therefore, it might happen that on other platforms some issues will occur. 

    Best,
