Degeneration of Display Pipeline?

Dimension numbers have disappeared (some remain):

After restart (and closing three other Rhinos):

This has happened before. Not sure what is going on.

  • If you Zoom in and out do they show up?
  • Are you Zoomed in closely on a file that covers a large area?
  • Does this happen on all files or mostly this one?
  • Do both good and bad dimensions belong to the same name annotation style?

Nothing changed if you zoom in/out.

Or switch layout back and forth.

I can’t zoom in to find a very small dimension text. It seems to be completely gone.

They are the same Style.

Only thing that works is a restart of Rhino.

Hi Erik - when this happens, please look in Properties, with no selection, and check the camera coordinates and the distance to target - are the numbers reasonable/expected?

-Pascal

I think this was in the Layout. With an Active/Passive Detail. Does the Camera question apply there as well ? If Active yes, but if Passive ?

Here is something similar. When I zoom in/out. The section hatch pattern somehow fails.

Hatch Behaves Weirdly

Why does the hatch suddenly turn red ?

I can see that the Layer colour is red.

But the section style is like in the dialog.

So it should not turn red.

tech@mcneel.com already has this file as it is behaving weirdly in many other aspects.

All the best

I’m going out on a limb here and say it is due to duplicate geometry with different settings. Like the other thread I answered in.

Hi Erik -

It appears to only do that here when I have the viewport in the Arctic display mode and a Picture object is visible in the scene. When you hide that picture, it displays correctly here.

I’ve put this on the list as RH-82893 Display: Section Color is Wrong in Arctic
Thanks,
-wim

Not that simple I think.

In this version there is only one polysurface. It still changes into red when zooming out. And as far as I know there is no red hatch or anything that can appear as solid red when zooming out.

Display Degeneration Or Something

/Erik

I think you meant to post this in your other thread to my other reply Degeneration of Display Pipeline? - #7 by nathanletwory ?

Sorry, you’re right.

Is it possible to move the post ?
