Flickering window

Anyone else having trouble just using Revit 2013? Please weigh in if you think you know where this might be coming from.


Just did the upgrade to Revit Architecture 2013. Revit now seems to be running a LOT slower. Lag times between actions are about double, much more memory is being used, and I've already crashed Revit twice.


On top of this, I've come across an issue where part of the window gets offset / overlaid on top of the actual window location, and flickers like crazy whenever anything is done. Sometimes minimizing and restoring Revit will fix it, sometimes I just have to restart Revit.


Boo! This computer had no problems running 2012, and now I'm regretting the upgrade!

I've had a user report this same issue.  We have not found a workaround yet.

I have heard rumors that if you turn on graphic acceleration it may actually improve performance.... a bit backwards but it seems to work for some people.
