    Why do my annotations flash between red, black and yellow?

    Matthew Roeseler

      I have Solidworks 2015, SP 5.0. Just got a new computer, and we installed our current version of Solidworks (2015) on it. 2 or 3 times a day, my annotations throughout my drawing will suddenly turn into red squares. When I hover my cursor over the text, it will switch back to black, or sometimes will have some yellow in it. All will revert back to normal if i move or 'fit' the page again, but i move my cursor and everything goes red again. I've found by closing Solidworks, it will fix it for a while, but today i've tried closing it multiple times and the text keeps flashing to red blocks soon after i open it back up. I've been in multiple different drawings and had it happen so i don't believe that's the issue. Picture below is what it looks like after i move my cursor over a few of the annotations.
