Aperture jumpy only over objects

My aperture / crosshairs seems to have a magnetic attraction to all objects in drawings.  Over an empty area, motion is smooth.  When crossing over any object(s), be they in Model Space or a Layout, the cursor is attracted to objects.  Is this an AutoCAD setting that I'm not aware of, or is this a graphics card / hardware acceleration issue?

Uncheck "Show rollover ToolTips" under "Tools/Options/Display" or Set "ROLLOVERTIPS=0",

that should work.

So what do you have turned on, SELECTIONPREVIEW and/or Quick Properties and/or Selection Cycling and/or any palettes (even minimized)?

SELECTIONPREVIEW = 0

 

QPMODE = -1  (what does -1 do?  That value is not described in the Help)

 

HIGHLIGHT = 1  (Setting highlight to 0 has no effect on the jumpy effect)

 

Selection Cycling: is there a setvar that controls that?  I thought selection cycling was activated only by a keystroke combination.

 

Palettes: Xref palette, Tool palettes, Properties palette

I don't recall if R2010 had SELECTIONCYCLING variable of not.

 

So R2010 is not new, what changed recently?

it's not the other things I noted, good: are you using Windows7?

Is AutoCAD's hardare acceleration toggled on/off?

Windows 7- yes.

 

What's new recently- last week my profile went in the dumper- don't recall what caused it, but I had to rebuild the interface and save as a new profile.  I've been chasing various menus and config files around since.  I can't say for sure that the jumpy cursor thing was not active before rebuilding my profile, but I think I would have noticed.

 

Hardware Acceleration: enabled.  A screen cap of the Manual Tuning dialog box is attached.
