Display Style Issue

I was working on a part when all of a sudden the display style started acting up. I attached a picture with what it looks like. Right now, I am in a part environment with the display style set to "Shaded with edges." The display is orthogonal. When I change the display to perspective everything is fine. I attached some photos of what is going on. I have tried the following:



You have a topological error in your model. Go to Tools>Options>System Options>Performance. The first checkbox is for "verification on rebuild". Turn that on, then hit CTRL-Q. This will do a full force rebuild, and it will probably turn some of your features RED. Those need to be analysed for why they are bad (causing inverted faces).


Make sure to turn verification on rebuild back off after you get it all fixed. It very significantly increases rebuild time, so you don't want it on all the time.



Here is an example of me doing this on purpose:


However, it only helped a little and none of my features are red. Does anyone have a solution?
