Draftsight - No geometry visible after upgrade to 2016

Draftsight - No geometry visible after upgrade to 2016

Draftsight - No geometry visible after upgrade to 2016

Hi All,

Having a bit of bother with Draftsight. I decided to upgrade last week to 2016 having used a version from circa 2013 successfully alongside Solidworks for 3 years.

The problem i'm hving is as follows. I open Draftsight, no problems. Move my cursor to the model space and it disappears (like it has gone behind the model space) it will then reappear if i move it back to the tool bars etc. If I load an existing drawing, none of the geometry is visible or selectable in any of the view tabs, however, if i print preview it is all there!!!

I have updated my GPU Driver (Quadro K300), reinstalled Draftsight multiple times... turned my laptop on and off etc etc

Seems like a similar problem to this http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=305461 but with the exception I can see nothing and select nothing.

Can anybody help me?

I have the same problem....

RE: Draftsight - No geometry visible after upgrade to 2016

This seems to happen whenever they release a new version. Since the standard fix isn't working for you, perhaps you should fill out a bug report at https://swym.3ds.com/#supportcenter and click "report a problem". Good luck!
