Line tool on M1 Max Macbook Pro 2021 w/ Sketchup 2022 looks like the Matrix. Why?

I am working in SketchUp 2022 on an M1 Max MacBook Pro 2021 and the Line tool looks like the Matrix. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a fix? Honestly, it’s a bit maddening and I am about to lose my mind.

Graphic card update.
Mac professionals to come with better info.

I don’t have an answer to your question as I don’t have an M1 Mac, but I would point out that if you are actually running SketchUp 2022 on an M1 Mac, you need to update your forum profile. In this case the topic title makes it clear, but on other posts it might not be so obvious, and the wrong profile could lead us off on a wild goose chase before we discover these things!

In SketchUp>Preferences>OpenGL try changing the state of Use Fast Feedback?

I don’t know if it applies to the M1 Mac but often integrated graphics work better if you turn off “Fast Feedback” on the Preferences>OpenGL dialog and restart SketchUp.

Some Mac users did recently see that happen, and unchecking Use fast feedback was the solution. But, I haven’t seen a report before that was M1 specific. My M1 Max MacBook Pro certainly doesn’t do it.

I just got the new machine. Thanks for the heads up.

Unchecking fast feedback was the solution. Thanks, everyone!

Out of curiosity did you check for updates after powering up the new machine?

You might keep an eye open for updates from Apple and check after the next one to see if there’s any change to the graphics drivers. Turn on Fastfeedback and see if the problem returns or not. I’d expect at some point you’ll be able to work with it turned on.

BTW, nice work shown on your website.

I have seen it in combination of screenrecording software (GIPHY capture.app) when I was on 12.0
could not reproduce (or capture) at that time.
