Disappearing Views and Text - Inventor 2013

687 Views, 20 Replies

At times when dimensioning or creating views in 2D, items will disappear. These items are dimensions or even complete views. They return as soon as hit the scroll wheel on the mouse or my 3D connexion mouse. Is anyone else experiencing this or know how to fix it? We have 3 active seats and all three of us are having this issue.

 

System specs:

Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit

Intel Xeon X340 @ 2.40 GHz 2.53 GHz

300 GB Harddrive that's 1/3 full (192 GB free of 296 GB)

12 GB of RAM

NVIDIA Quadro FX1800 - Lates Driver installed (thought this would help)

 

Any help would be appreciated.

So far it looks promising. I opened and currently working in a drawing it was happening in yesterday. However, I had closed it and saved it prior to running the update. I will be doing another, almost identical assembly later and if it's clear then I will be pleased. :smileyhappy:

Sounds like a graphics issue to me, but the latest drivers should have taken care of that.  Occasional odd behaviors reported here have been fixed by an update to the 3Dconnexion driver and even to the mouse driver.

 

Have you tried switching App Options > Hardware settings to see if a change there makes a difference?  Selecting "Software graphics" should only be used for testing, as it is very slow.  But if it makes your problem go away, it indicates a problem with the graphics hardware/drivers.

Still happening with the above recommended changes. Could it be a graphics card issue? Not powerful enough?
