Can not see sketch.

Just installed inventor on a new PC. When I go to sketch a line it appears to be drawn but nothing is being created. Any ideas?

System specs including OS and particularly graphics card/driver.

 

Did you follow these instructions?

Did you install Service Pack1?

 

Try going to Tools>Application Options>Hardware tab and set on lowest setting.

What part of JD's suggestions was the solution?  Other readers may have the same issue in the future.

If it was the Hardware setting - I would try to download updated graphics card driver and then see if you can go up the list of settings.

cbenner,

 

 

It seems during my orignal installation something interfered with the generic templates loaded with the program. I was able to get some function when I created my own. The problem was completely solved when i re-downloaded and installed the program for a second time.

 

 

No real bug here! Just an anomaly. 

 

Thank you all for the help.
