I have a strange problem with my title block. Most of the time when I enter text into my title block I am unable to see what I am typing because their is a blue box in front of the text (see screen shot). Any thoughts?
I've never seen that before. My first thought is a graphics card issue. See #13 here:
I rebooted my machine and the original problem went away however there may be another. After I enter the text and tab to the next field, the field that I just entered goes back to being all blue so that I can't see the text again until I hit ok to exit the title block. Is this normal? I am going to look into the graphics card as well. I do have an approved card but the driver doesn't match up with what Solidworks says I should have.
Have you found a solution to this? I have this same problem and it drives me crazy. I've search through this forum and online and I can't seem to find an answer.
I have this exact same problem, for years and cannot figure out what in the world is wrong. Can we hope to get a solution for it?
Why aren't you using custom properties to fill in the title block
Check all your color options one by one change them - rebuild go back change the next one
I have the same problem. Any solution?
Unfortunately no. I haven't even found a consistant work-around either.
I am guessing that you have an editable Title Block field overlaid over your note.
What I specifically mean is this:

He is editing the title block, but the blue field remains 'on top' of the text being edited, which obscures what you are typing until you finished editing the title block.
So, then....is it possible that you have 2 fields in the same place? 1 right on top of the other?
You can have hundreds if you want to stack that many notes on top of each other, you just won't be able to read any of it, if you need to use multiple Custom Properties
No, because it's an inconsistent problem.
One day it'll be fine, and the next it'll be like this.
I've checked the number of fields in the title block and there are the correct number and non are overlaid.
check video card driver and restart?
Here we are in 2020 and I still have this issue (SW 2019). I've been able to ignore it, but its really getting annoying. Has there been a solution to this problem?
has anyone reached out to their VAR. This sounds like something right up their alley
Why is this still actually a thing? Have personally experienced this problem since SW2016.
