Red screen with WIP6 for mac



I can report that I am also seeing the same issue in the latest WIP.
It’s been an issue for the last few WIP. Just never reported.
Just starting from a blank document and doing the same thing seen in Kev R’s movie produces the same results.

Similar thing here, but with black windows. [reported on several other threads ]
I’d guess dark mode produce the same bug in black which light mode show in red.

thanks a lot


Mine was red in dark mode.


Then I guessed wrong, sorry for that.
From a user perspective it defiantly looks like the same problem manifesting in Red or black.

thanks a lot


Hi Nathan,

I too have been having the same problem for months now. I’ve given the system info to the folks at Rhino but am not aware of a solution yet?

@Richard_Thomas, as far as I know we haven’t found a fix yet.

But we’ll let this forum know when we do.

FYI only, this has been logged in RH-49555.


I get the red screen when the Rhino programme window is not maximised.

Might this be key to the problem?
