Hello all - I use PCB Editor on 3 different machines at various times of the week. I have my user preference for the display of my cursor set to "infinite". On two of the three machines I experience a "ghosting" of the cursor as I move it across the screen. A remnant of the cursor display is left until I pan or zoom. Any ideas what might be causing this? I'm guessing my graphics card. Thanks in advance.
Yes - I too have this issue with my new Win7 i7 screaming workstation that I just built. It actually makes the infinite cursor option useless on my system.
In working a related issue with the 3D viewer with tech support I learned that there is an incompatibility (PCB editor) with the Win 7/Microsoft "Aero Themes" for desktop display! Perhaps this only applies to some graphics cards, but it certainly does to mine. The "fix" is to turn off any "aero theme" desktop and go back to Windows basic desktop or something. Alternatively, you can disable OpenGL in your PCB editor preferences, but unfortunately this also disables the 3D viewer function.
Cadence has an enhancement request to fix this bug sometime - -
