Hi,
just in case you are missing the new help text overlay (new Modeler tools in LW 11.5) in your viewports.
It could be because the 10 bit support for high end displays in your graphics card settings is active.
I don't think this is related to LW, it seems to be a glitch in the cards driver or the windows graphics subsystem.

(Win7 64 bit and AMD FirePro in my case)

That's interesting. I didn't even know this was in Modeler now. Time to check it.

Update:
There was a Windows update a few days ago (Platform update fur Windows 7 x64 Edition (KB2670838)).
It is an optional update, so might not get installed without explicitly telling it to do so.


This article describes a platform update for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This update improves the features and performance of the following components:

Direct2D
DirectWrite
Direct3D
Windows Imaging Component (WIC)
Windows Advanced Rasterization Platform (WARP)
Windows Animation Manager (WAM)
XPS Document API
H.264 Video Decoder
JPEG XR codec


Guess what, now help text works with 10 bit feature active.
