Just updated Foxtrot Professional to 6.0.3 build 1718 and everytime it
loads it displays a strange extra floating window saying 'no itmes
selected' in large text. Fortunately there is a button to close the window
but it's a major irritation. Can someone advise me on this

This is really strange. I can't reproduce this. In fact, with version 6.0.2, this Quick Look window could be visible when FoxTrot was launched from an AppleScript, or from FoxTrot's system menu. Version 6.0.3 is supposed to fix that, and in your case, it does the opposite.

Are there other people seeing this issue?

I just updated to 6.0.3 on my second computer - also on 10.13.3. Same
problem
hitting space closes the window but annoying nevertheless

I have noticed that if I start or restart the computer and then load
Foxtrot before doing anything else, the problem does not occur. But if I
then close the app and load it again the blank quickview window appears
again and it does this for any subsequent loading of the app

Thank you for the much appreciated feedback AND the testing report that led us to issuing this 6.0.4. Believe us, it is SO important to get feedback when we put something out for testing - none of us in house is a as smart as all of our users together !
