Program acts funny when I close Volumes Dashboard

Whenever I open the Volumes Dashboard in a drawing and then close it, my cursor and my WCS compass start blinking erratically, and the program seems more apt to freeze up when I try to do other things from that point on, especially if I try to move to a drawing in another tab. If I bring back the volumes dashboard, it's fine again, but then I've got the annoying outlining of my volume surfaces that I don't want. Anyone know how to handle this? Is it just an unavoidable glitch in the program?

 

(I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014.)

Have you tried a "Repair of your Installation"?

You have to dismiss the dashboard by clicking the green check button.  If you close the Panorama window, by clicking on the x button, with the Volume Dashboard vista still active, your display will flicker.  This occurs because it is still trying to highlight the selected volume surface.

Awesome, thank you, David. Strange design though.
