This article talks about the screen turning into an array of black, pink and white lines when opening Liquid Notes.

Quick answer: This problem is related to screen mirroring on an external monitor. It only happens with MacBook Pro's with a Retina display when screen mirroring is active.

This erroneous behavior is currently being investigated. If you unplug the connection to your monitor or switch off screen mirroring, Liquid Notes' user interface will be displayed correctly.
