Up until recently, my print composer was working normally- I don't know what changed. Currently using Lisboa 1.8.0 on Windows 7.

Open qGIS, add some layers. New composer manager. Add new map, draw a square.
The box for the new map is empty- no map is inside. To be sure the coordinates are right, I set the extent of the map to the canvas extent and tried adjusting the scale. Sometimes a single point will show up in the middle of the composer, which I can move around, but zooming in or out just leaves that single dot. There should be hundreds of points on the map, with vector and raster layers, but even zooming a ridiculous amount out, nothing is there. It's like the map is there, but not really there- I can add a legend based on the map, but never the real map.

I don't know if this is a bug or if I'm totally missing something. I have made many maps previously and they always just showed up when I did "add new map". I have tried reinstalling qGIS but it still occurs.

Thanks for any suggestions.
