anyone have a example drawing containing it.
It is one of those anomalies that is not dwg resident, but just shows up sometimes, and others it will not be seen for days/weeks. Not always in the same dwgs. Seeing as Alan and I both use Civil3D, and very few others have reported this, I suspect it is something in that or Map which caused this graphics glitch.

I've seen it before and it is persistent. Usually only noticed it when it is a distance away from the body of the drawing. Not using C3D.

Try disabling "High quality geometry" and / or "Smooth line display" under Graphics

Have you tried rebooting? Or turning the monitor off/on?  :roll:

Yeah, not sure what you'll find though.


I have this thing at the corner of my drawing, very annoying.
