Crash when trying to edit annotation style from linked (DWG) block

I work a lot with inserting DWGs as linked blocks. These DWGs often have embedded annotation styles. These annotation styles appear in the list of annotation styles in Rhino, but when I click an annotation style from an external DWG, Rhino instantly crashes. This happens every time. I don’t mind not being able to edit externally referenced annotation styles, but I sometimes click one of these annotation styles accidentally.

Is this bug something that is being worked on? It’s very annoying.

Hej Agnes -

I’ll need some help reproducing that behavior here.
Could you start by running the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here?

An integrated accelerated graphics device exists and is attached to a monitor, but it’s not being used by Rhino.

  • Recommended: Use Windows’ Display Settings to configure one of the other monitors to be the “Main Display”.
  • Any hardware configuration or cabling changes you make will require that you restart Rhino.

Hi Agnes -

There’s something wrong with the configuration of the display devices on your machine.
I would first reboot the machine and check if all updates for Windows 10 are installed. Then try a clean install of the drivers using the following recipe:


Hmm, OK, this crash happens even when I’m not connected to an external monitor. But maybe the drivers thing is relevant for the crashing anyway.
