Hi Folks, need to shoot project tonight and I am frustrated.
I have 5DMK3 with 1.2.3 and latest ML Nightly build. 
I installed new build tonight and when I go to record, my aspect ratio template and info disappears.  I am recording with no info on screen except picture I am shooting.  Please offer any suggestions... I have to shoot at 7:00pm mountain time.  Thanks, Joe Ray

If you are using mlv_rec: Movie tab -> RAW video (MLV) -> Global Draw ON

Any other suggestions???

Display -> Clear overlays -> OFF
Or reset ML to factory defaults and retry.
If it doesn't help: Switch back to an older build (just overwrite files and directories on card) and if error is reproducable with newest build create an issue on bitbucket.

Walter, thank you for your kind and professional responses.   Doing what you suggested I can shoot if everything comes together  but I still have no aspect ratio template when I try to shoot.  I am also getting error messages. for example, my ML reloaded without modules because of memory error.  When you can, can you walk me through how to reset to ML to factory default.  Even when I bough a new sd card and did the new daily, the ML index is missing items.  One example, the only place I can select an icon to show I am recording is from the modified list... no where else.   Im in Durango and need to shoot on the narrow gage steam train. I sure would appreciate your Advice to reset to default.  ThanksWalter... Joe Ray

Prefs tab -> Config files -> Restore ML defaults.

Backup your ROM files (ML -> LOGS -> ROM0.BIN and ROM1.BIN).
Default configuration will cause ML to skip modules loading after crash and message screen showing up. That's normal but memory and screen errors are not. My advice would be *not* to use this cam after all but wait for a1ex to reproduce errors using your ROM files and/or un-brick your cam. Looks like an emergency to me.
