Bug in selected object display

Here a sample of a bug which appears something like 2 weeks ago.
When you select an object other obejcts have the same selected color in a kind of ghost preview.
A simple scene with a blue and a green box.
When selecting the green one (which become pink) the blue one appears with a mix of blue and pink while not selected. test.3dm (56.4 KB)


Hi - yes, we have this one on our list as RH-52008.
For the time being, it looks like you can uncheck Use advanced GPU lighting in your modified display mode to make this disappear.

Hi Wim,
Even if GPU lightning is switch off the bug still appear in my case…

When 6.16RC will be released as it seems that it is fixed on this version? Actually with the latest built this bug still here.

Hi - could you post the result of the Rhino SystemInfo command?

Hi - thanks for that!
The bug fix should be in the version that you are running now, so this must be something else.
Does this happen with any of the factory-default display modes on your system? (i.e., in Rhino Options, make sure that none of the display modes that you see this in is written in blue text).

CC: @DavidEranen - any ideas?


This fix is in Rhino 6.16 and Rhino WIP. Rhino 6.16 is planned to release as a Release Candidate on June 11th.


@wim it is mainly (only?) on home made display mode.
@DavidEranen thanks for the info i’ll wait untill the 11th then
