Display Settings



For some time, I have to cope with display problems in RSTAB and RFEM that make it difficult to work with the software. It mainly affects the display of results. Depending on the zoom in and out, the lines are extended, dotted or absolutely not displayed.
Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?


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It could also be a problem that the graphics card driver is outdated.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.
