Since updating to indesign version 17 my display guides are randomly distorting on the screen, so part of a vertical guide is stepped out of line. If I close the document and open it is ok until the next time.
The distortion seems to be worse when I add object boxes but is very random
Can you add a screenshoot?
Try turning off GPU performance in the prefs.
I am using windows 10 and there is no GPU setting in preferences I think this is only availabe on a MAC.
Is there an equivalent feature/setting in windows
Does this happen on all files?
It does not seem to happen in every document it seems just random and I have not as yet identified any common factor. Also it does not seem to affect an exported document.
I agree but I have tried searching the forums but cannot find any reference to this
My graphics card is NVIDIA geforce gtx 1070.
It is a fairly common card so I would have thought somebody else would be having the same issue
Did you go to NVIDIA's website and check for updated drivers?
My windows settings uses a NVIDIA driver dated 22/11/2020 and if I try to update it says that this is "up to date" but if I go to the NVIDIA site there is a later STUDIO driver dated 10.11.21.
I had no problems until I updated INDD to version 17 and was hoping that I could get confirmation that there was a potential compatibilty problem before I started trying to update my graphics drivers.
" I don't want to dig myself into a deeper hole"!
I have updated my NVIDIA driver to the latest studio version and I still have the guide display problem
I have tried resetting my preferences to no avail but:
If I untick the "grids in back" option the problem seems to go away.
Has anybody got any ideas? and what is the implication of leaving this option unset
