If there is a problem with the screen display
After installing the new version of STAMP Workbench, problems such as some characters becoming unreadable have been confirmed. When installing the latest version, if the files of the old version remain, this screen display problem may occur. This is because when you uninstall an older version, the uninstaller may not be able to remove the old files. This happens if you have previously installed by overwriting without uninstalling. If you encounter this issue, please try the steps below.
Exit STAMP Workbench
Uninstall with the uninstaller
Completely delete the previously installed stampworkbench folder.

STAMP Workbench uses the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and includes the JRE in the installation package. If you have problems with STAMP Workbench operation due to the included JRE, you may be able to solve the problem by updating the JRE. This procedure manual describes the procedure for the user to update the JRE of the installed STAMP Workbench by yourself.
Please note that this procedure can be applied to STAMP Workbench Ver2.0.0 that includes Adopt Open JDK, and not to Ver 1.0.2 or earlier versions that include oracle JDK.
These tips are minor notes on the tool's operation, and are not important tips on STPA analysis methods.
Dark mode (high contrast mode)
It has been confirmed that some characters cannot be read when "High Contrast Mode" is enabled and "High Contrast: Black" is set in the Windows settings. STAMP Workbench does not support automatic text / graphic color change in "High Contrast Mode". Try selecting the background, shape, line, and text colors in the Diagram Editor of [Tool] -> [System Property].
Problem with Excel output
This is a method to deal with the performance limitation of MS office. Excel has a default maximum column width of 255 characters (depending on the version of MS office), so if you set the column width (cell width) of the table in this tool to 256 characters or more, an error may occur when outputting to Excel.
An error will occur when outputting a table from this tool to Excel if a high resolution is set on a 4K or higher display, the full screen window of this tool is displayed in full screen mode with the full screen displayed in reduced size, and the cell width is set to exceed 255 characters. However, the data retained by the tool will not be corrupted or lost when the error occurs.
The problem can be avoided by changing the window width of the tool to a slightly smaller size before executing the Excel output.
