Disappearing text in Configuration Publisher.

The text in Configuration Publisher dialog window disappears when I either check or uncheck any given checkbox that has configurations to it. Explanation is as follows.

 

I have created an assembly with a number of sub-assemblies in it as can be seen in screen 1a. A number of the sub-assemblies have as many as 4 configurations to them for the different assembly states. This is the standard machine that will have other parts added to it that’s not part of the standard.

I have inserted a design table on the main assembly as well each sub-assembly to drive Configuration Publisher as seen in screen 1b. Doing this allows for all the possible ways this machine can be assembled.

When I drop the main assembly file into another assembly file the Configuration Publisher auto-starts as it should as can be seen in screen 2.

The first three choices are for suppressed or unsuppressed only. The headrest regulator assembly check box is driven by the headrest assembly which has configurations to it. The remaining features all have selectable configurations to them.

 

As stated previously the text in Configuration Publisher dialog window disappears when I either check or uncheck any given checkbox that has configurations to it as seen in screen 3.

The more I check or uncheck the more of the text disappears as seen in screen 4.

This is not a graphics card issue as I have done a number of assemblies in this manner and this is the first time this issue has happened.

 

I have gone through all the part and assembly files and found no issues with them. I have started from scratch rebuilding the main assembly, reinserting and editing the design table, and, rebuilding the Configuration Publisher options. And the problem still exists.

 

Computer runs Windows Home Premium and Solidworks 2015 SP4. Excel is part of Office 2010 both of which are up to date as is my graphics

driver.

 

Any help is much appreciated.
