Graphics issue -- Windows 7


Hi all,


I'm new to Solid Edge and have an annoying problem. New features (if that's the right word) have these contrail-like afterimages that only disappear after I've placed the feature or selected a new tool. I need a solution, because this makes careful work difficult. There should be a picture appending this post showing my problem.


 Some information about my computer and program:

I'm using a mid-2010 iMac with 8 gb RAM and an AMD Radeon HD 4670 graphics card. I'm running Windows 7 Professional installed on a partition created with Boot Camp. I have Solid Edge 10, with maintenance pack 8 installed. 


I've tried installing drivers for my graphics card and for Boot Camped Windows 7 and neither fixed my problem. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to change some settings in Options- View


Untick the Automatic selection and choose Graphics Card driven (Basic)

HI @sleepyscribe




besides the settings mentioned by @Fiorini I only must say that this type of problems I have seen so much often when AMD Radeon cards are involved.

This might be the reason too that I promised myself to never ever use an AMD card in any of our computers.
