Black Workspace in Electronics Design

I've been having some trouble with a downloaded version of Fusion. The workspace for electronics work is black and I can't see any components placed. My preferences are set to light mode and my graphics drivers are all up to date and should be more than what is required. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling a few times as well as changing the graphics driver to DirectX9, OpenGL and DirectX11. Any ideas? I'm running into this on a Windows 11 laptop, 32 GB RAM, with RX 10 Vega graphics card by amd. Also, I can see the CAD workspace perfectly fine, this is just an issue in the electronics workspace.

Dear @ggoddardLT52N,


Good news that today we released new Fusion version 2.0.15995 which has fixes about below issues you reported about GPU rendering, including:


  • Black Canvas in some Windows OS with integrated AMD graphic card
  • Canvas refresh issue in Windows OS with Intel Iris Xe
  • Customer Font not showing well
  • Slow performance in some Mac Intel OS which ONLY has integrated graphic card
  • Overlapping polygon and rotated device issue

Could you please update Fusion to new version and go to preferences dialog and check the checkbox to enable the GPU rendering and relaunch Fusion to take effective?




Please feel free to let us know if you have any problem about the new version.

Much appreciated for all your feedback and patient. 


Hope you have a great day.
