have been using SP 0 for a while, and found it rather instable but at least
it worked well. Now, after updating to SP1 I (we) experience a very annoying
In drawing mode everyting becomes very sluggish. Making detail views,
sections views etc. takes about 10 times as much time as with SP 0 (and I
checked on two systems). But the most annoying thing is that creating /
dragging dimensioning has become such a nuisance that I went back to SP 0.
Dragging a dimension or note makes the dimension flicker of and on like a
bad lightbulb. It takes a second after I select a dimension before it
"sticks" to the pointer.
Even, when CTRL-TABbing from a model to the drawing the model keeps visible
through a completely screwed up drawing window. Only restarting SW help.
It seems to me a video problem. I am not the only one. A mate of mine called
me the other day. Different company, different hardware, exactly same
problem. Also he and his colleagues went back to SP 0, and halted migrating
from 2003 to SW2004 for the rest of the company (and they are a big company
with lots of seats).
I know there is a problem and that is it not just me. But is there a work
around? But e.g. somenone found an OpenGL setting that needs to be changed
or so? We use Compaq/HP workstations, W2K and WXP, and Nvidia OpenGL cards.
SW approved stuff.
