Interface glitching weird, first time using Rhino

Hi all,

I just downloaded rhino and started running into some weird display issues when trying to create a model. Lines will randomly thicken and then disappear, sometimes the whole window fills with black or yellow and strobes when zooming in and out or scaling an object. I have no idea what the problem is or how to fix it. I’m attached a few pictures.

Please help! Thanks :slight_smile:

Please post a 3dm file as well as the SystemInfo command results @Paige_Powell . I think you might have a custom linetype style applied.

Thanks for the replies. Really need this software to run for my small business but not really sure what’s going on.
