Script Editor Broken

I can’t edit the code in my c# script component. Code is in there, the component works, but I can’t edit it. When going to code editor, no code is visible, see the attached picture bellow.

Can you run systeminfo in rhino to see what specific version is running?

As a note, I experienced this both with R8.7 yesterday morning, then also with R8.8 after an auto update. Additionally, it seems I can still select code, delete it, edit it, etc, I just simply can’t see what is happening.

A couple things:

  1. The Intel(R) Iris(R) Xe Graphics (Intel) driver is a bit old. I would get it updated. . Make sure to restart everything after install.
  2. If there is a new blank Grasshopper canvas. Drop a new C# script component there. Will that show the text? Will it accept typing?

intel claims the driver is up to date. Regardless, the Script component just started working as normal with no clear indication as to what changed. Chalk this down to something funny and weird, but hopefully exceedingly rare.
