Text options disappear

Hi all

An error I have been getting often is when I click on a text box to edit it, the options in the right hand window pane are all invisible, until I mouse over them and they get ‘revealed’ one by one.

I am attaching a video to show this more clearly as well as the file it happened in last.

I want to chime in and let you guys know I have this behavior as well.
It seems a hit and mis if the text panel is displaying correctly or not.

I’ll see if I can escalate this.

Since you’re running a “Hybrid” display setup, Windows gets to choose what parts of an application use the Intel chip and which use the nVidia.
You’re Intel driver is old.
Your GeForce driver seems new enough.

Download the newest driver from Intel.
You may need to use these instructions to load it:

FWIW I see this on my GTX 1060 as well (non-hybrid setup).

The very simple steps from the latest bug that duplicated the one I linked should get you to the disappearing panel quickly:
