Opaque background - MText editor

I'm having some issues with MText object in AutoCAD 2011.  The weirdest one is that with the opaque background selected, it will actually cover up the text within the MText I'm editing.  I've attached a bmp below.  In it you can see the MText editor open, but it's blank.  There should be text filling up nearly all of the editor.  Any ideas?


I've also noticed a lot of ghosting issues with MText objects.  Regen won't get rid of them either, but they don't plot.  And if you close out the drawing, and bring it back up, they'll be gone.  I've included a bmp of that as well.  You can see two green, horizontal bars over portion of the model.  It's a ghost of MText object further on down the page.


I didn't see any of these topics listed in the forum, so forgive if they've already been addressed.


Thanks for any help you can give.

Windows version? Video Card? PC specs? Ghosting tends to be a hardware/driver issue, do you have hardware acceleration turned on in R2011?

Windows XP Professional

I turned hardware acceleration on, but made no difference.


I've been using r2010 on this machine for 7 months with no issues with the MText.  It's only been a r2011 problem.
