Is there a setting to stop this edge highlighting stuff from happing?
Check this thread and uncheck the options suggested:
Forgot to mention this is SolidWorks 2014 SP 4.0 running on a iMac 3.5 GHZ Intell i7 32GB and running on Paralles 9. SolidWorks runs great other than this issue.
Thank you much.
the fix can be found on the page you posted. This is what fixed it for me.
Dynamic highlight under System Options > Feature Manager
