Pen display mode is black?


I use rhino5 (new user), when I try to ZOOM in PEN display mode the screen turns black?! Why?
All other modes work normally…What’s wrong?

Hi Pasi

What system are you running Rhino on?
Might it be a virtual enviornment (VM ware or Parralels?)

If you add information wbout your windows version; videocard etc. It’s maybe easier to pinpoint the problem.



Hi Willen

Comupter is just new, and I use stand alone sytem rhino.
System is Windows 7 / Intel core i7-4770 cpu 3,40 GHZ/ ram 8 G/Intel HD Graphics 4600…
Does this help?

Hi Pasi,

If I’m not mistaken these not that “feature rich” video cards.
If you uncheck "Use accelerated hardware mode"
in the options panel like so:

Does the pen display mode work then?



Great, it works! Thank you very much!!!

Hi Pasi,

Be aware that it might slow down the display with complex models; so it’s wise to switch that checkbox and feel the difference when you have the display slowing down.
