Solidworks Traces Features Before Edit

Hi all. I feel like this is a graphics card related issue but I haven't had issues in the past and I believe once I upgraded to 2016 I started having the issue.


When I click a feature in the feature tree, Solidworks does not pop up the context menu until it traces out the feature first. I have searched the forums and the closest case I could find is linked below but the case was never resolved.


Stop SolidWorks from "tracing" a sketch


I have tried changing the "Dynamic highlights from graphics view" as well as Instant 3D both on and "Use software OpenGL" both on and off with the same result.


I recorded a video of the issue linked below.

The Graphics card in use is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 which has not been tested by Solidworks but is a relatively new card. I am running a 3.40 GHz i5 CPU with 16.0 GB of RAM. If there are any other desktop specs I should provide just let me know.
