    Sketch lines disappear

    robert dattilo

      Hello;

           Having a problem, with sketch line disappearing; for instance i'm trying to add some constraints; when i pick a radius, & then hold the control key down, the sketch of the radius portion disappears. Quite frustrating, & I don't know why it's happening, but wondering if any one knows anything about this, & what i could posible do.          

           Thks for any info. in advance.

          Rob,

           

          Your part file looks ok.  Can you give us a run-down of your system specs? Specifically your video card and its driver number.

              Hello;

                  This is a home computer that I purchased in 2003. It's a Dell 4600 Dim with an Intel Pentium 4 procesor at 2.80GHz. The graphics card is a 128mb ddr ATi Radeon 9800. I did recently upgrade the ram to 2.50 gb. It probably is the graphics card, but I'm just using the home computer for some exercises etc.; and you never know when it's something with SW. Like this hasn't been happening until now. It might of even happened a little at work though so, I don't know. I probably wouldn't sink a considerable amount of money into this home computer at this time for doing exercises, but at work it might be different.

                   Thks again;

                       Happy New Year to all;

              Rob,

               

              I had the same problem a while back. I updated my video card driver and it has not happened again.
