Display Mode Bug?

Hi all

Has anyone had the recurring issue in 7 where custom display modes either drop out of file - or are replaced with multiples of the same “type”

IE - all custom displays are now Shaded, Shaded, Shaded. Is this a RV7 issue?

Thank you kindly

Hi Oliver -

If I recall correctly, I’ve also seen that happen in Rhino 6. Not so far in Rhino 8, though. If you have specific steps to make this happen, we would love to hear about them, because unless we can reproduce this, we can’t fix it. Also, please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here.

Thank you for your reply, Wim,

It could just be my computer - it crashed trying to replicate. My newest display mode [created yesterday] had reverted to shaded mode without me doing anything. After the reboot the proper display mode was back.

Wim, it could have just been my computer. There have been no updates to my drivers since 2018 - brought a new workstation today and when it arrives will test.

There have been other issues with machine
