Why do dimensions boxes sometimes appear black (or colour)?

Sometimes when I reopen a saved model I’m working on, the dimensions boxes are filled black (or whatever colour is set) so you can’t read the dimensions. I’ve looked at entity info and nothing obvious there. Sometimes this problem goes away again by itself, sometimes not.
Anyone else seen this and what did you do about it?

We’ve seen other reports of dimension text boxes showing as black. The problem has always been traced to graphics drivers needing to be updated. You might check into that.

According to your profile, you are using SU2016 with High Sierra. It’s worth noting that SU2016 is not optimized to work with High Sierra and so you could expect issues. You could upgrade to SU2017 Make and you might see better results.

With SU2016 you might also see if Hardware Acceleration is enable in Preferences>OpenGL. Disable it and see if that helps.

Another thing that causes this is a display set to display 16-bit colour instead of 24-bit or “Full colour”. I don’t know if this is even possible on the Mac.
