I encountered a weird bug in Schematic after installing 220.127.116.11 Free over 18.104.22.168 Free.
Schematic files created with 22.214.171.124 Free appears blank in 126.96.36.199 Free. No components, no page border and no title block are visible. The only visible item is a text note (in Arial) in one of the files. In Design Manager column the components and nets are visible, but not on the schematic. Clicking on the components on Design Manager show it to me one by one until I click on the schematic, when they disappear.
This appears to be the same issue i reported a few days back. For me, the problem persists after upgrading to 188.8.131.52. To recap, my problem is as follows:
- a schematic file created using 4.0.x containing a master sheet and hierarchy sheets, fails to display the master sheet. The hierarchy sheets work normally.
- If the master sheet was active during the last (working) save, i get an error message complaining about drawing failure and graphics support. This often pops up also when selecting the master sheet if it was not the default upon opening the file.
- Curiously, there is the option to select graphics mode (in View/Graphics Mode). In Schematic.exe, the selection does not stick - selecting whichever option, when you check it has always reverted to "Windows GDI". PCB.exe has the same feature and there the selection works as expected, i.e. you select one, and it stays that way.
- I have updated the graphics driver to the latest available and it works flawlessly everywhere else, and also on Schematic hierarchy sheets - as indeed it did before.
From the symptoms and behavior it appears obvious that the graphics driver is not the culprit, at least not directly.
Edit: my schematics do not have any pictures in them so it is not that for me at least.
