Beacon names not showing

I seem to have lost the display of the names of beacons (lateral channel markers etc).
The markers (red and green) are shown, with a purple question mark instead of the name.

I have been through the help file and didn't find anything about this. I have searched CF (maybe not using the best key words), and I have tried to change all the display options I think would pertain to this feature. I have also re-scanned and updated the database.

Please would some kind soul point me in the right direction.

Windows 10, opencpn v5, oesnc chart for Australia

Thank you
Tim

Check "Beacon/Light Labels"

Excellent reply, thank you!
Labels button was checked, but show text wasn't... The one options menu I didn't look at.
The characteristics of each light are now appearing.
The name of each light is still missing. The purple question mark still shows (although is only just visible).
Normally, this is an insignificant issue and I wouldn't even notice it. However, this current port has considerable commercial shipping traffic and their radio calls with intentions often include these names as reference points.

Re: Beacon names not showing

I have shut down O5 and restarted it. Names now appear, so issue is sorted. Question mark still there but is easily ignored
