Dear BJP,

Can you please advise from the Tw Menu /  Help / About TeXworks   box
that appears,  which version and revision of Tw you are using? The
required information is just below the copyright symbol.

Or please use 'Email to the Mailing List'  from the same Help Menu, to
send the message, as it automatically includes useful information to
help solve things.

Also - what other program or process modified the .tex file please,
was there an error log for that application as well?

TIA, paul
