Drag/Highlight, Invisible Gumball, and Anti-Aliasing issue

I’m having a strange issue that I can’t figure out–well more like a few issues that are probably related somehow. Chief among them is that the gumball disappears as soon as my mouse hovers over it. It still works, but I have to guess where to click to get it to do what I want. The second issue is that when I try to drag a box to highlight objects in the viewports, the box is invisible. Again, it still works, I just have to estimate where it is. The last piece is that the quality of the anti-aliasing in the viewports has significantly decreased. I just installed the new update and it didn’t solve the issues, so I’m assuming something weird is going on on my end. Is this something that anybody has experienced? Any ideas would be appreciated!

Hello - please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and post (copy/paste) the results here.

Hello - this is likely it right here:

Open the Notifications panel (Panel menu) and look for a notification about drivers - double-click on that and follow along to get to a newer driver - download and install that (both drivers in your case) and see how things work.


It worked! Thank you Pascal!!! You’re a wizard.

Good! (we see it a lot, Rhino is pretty sensitive to drivers for OpenGL)
