Deleting the line starting:

  <Window name="Preferences"

in ~/.config/ardour5/instant.xml was a workaround for me.

It was:

<Window name="Preferences" visible="yes" x-off="359" y-off="1296" x-size="1058" y-size="767" tabbed="no"/>

and is now:

<Window name="Preferences" visible="no" x-off="-1" y-off="-1" x-size="-1" y-size="-1" tabbed="yes"/>

This is already fixed in git.

I can still reproduce this issue with nightly build 5.4.252

If I detach the preferences and then close the window, save and exit ardour. After restart when the Preferences window is displayed only the left treeview is visible.

The ~/.config/ardour5/instant.xml contains:

  <Window name="Preferences" visible="no" x-off="0" y-off="0" x-size="1600" y-size="836" tabbed="no"/>

Deleting that line makes the widgets visible again after restart.

I can still reproduce this with nightly build 5.4.320 on linux.

It would be nice to get this issue fixed before the next release.

I can solidly recreate the blank preferences.

Currently (rev 5.4-323-g43bd7f5) built from git.
fedora 24.

If I have more MIDI Ports than can fit on the prefs dialog the symptom will always appear. When the preferences dialog is attached there is less room for these entries. When this occurs, the project overview at the bottom of the editor also disappears as if my screen has infinite height. That is, only once I've attempted to display preferences. I can always get it back by toggling/un-attaching editor mixer and prefs without the device with a lot of PORTS connected.

This should finally be fixed with commit a8e05a50 and can be tested in a nightly build >= 5.4.390

Please test and confirm this issue is now resolved.
