Sandy Matula Display Settings RFEM RSTAB

For some time now, I have display problems in RSTAB and RFEM that make it difficult to work with the software. It mainly affects the display of results. Lines are drawn, spotted or not displayed, depending on how you zoom in and out.
Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?

Answer

It might be advisable to (de) activate the hardware acceleration.

In RSTAB and RFEM, you can activate or deactivate the hardware acceleration (OpenGL) by using the menu "Options" → "Program Options" in the "Graphics" dialog tab.
In addition, an improved smoothing (antialiasing) can be set in the same dialog box to prevent the edge effect. Both options are only activated after restarting the program.

It could also be a problem that the graphics card driver is outdated. Under certain circumstances, this may lead to problems when using RSTAB and RFEM. I would therefore ask you to update the driver.
