R6SP1 Scrambled Text: a new twist

It's my day to post screen caps, I guess.

In the center of pic there are two driven dimensions. One is 1.375", and
the other is .438". If you look close you can see that the left parenthesis
is a "2", or at least part of a two, and the right one is a "3". This is a
variation on the scrambled text problem that I've never seen. As with the
other scrambled text problems we've seen, restarting Inventor fixed the
problem.

I was really hoping that SP1 would put this one to bed :-2

I had a garbled idw sketch text happen today (shut down / restart / A-OK).
Haven't seen the dim one in a while... guess it's just a matter of time. I
wonder what happens if you use a garbled dimension in an equation? Wow, it
could be a portal another dimension. 8~)

I was seeing garbled text and decided it was a video driver issue but
certainly not the only one I've run into with R6. None of the drivers
normally recommended worked so I let Windows Update decide and so far ... so
good. Haven't seen any issues yet, but I just installed the new driver this
morning.

I am also seeing garbled text in IDW's - printing is fine. Shut down
Inventor and restart clears it up mostly but it is a PAIN to do this
frequently.

I have this problem at times as well. However, the garbled text (7 showing
like C) will preview and print garbled. With mine, exiting Inventor will
normally clear it up. Exiting the drawing only does not help.
