View Full Version : LW display problem - Help!

12-29-2004, 07:47 PM
I'm using Lightwave 3D v7.0 and have encountered some kind of technical hitch (I think). The interface panels that come up when you select Surface editor or Clone normally have a grey background in the rectangular boxes into which values are typed (e.g- X+ offset). For no apparent reason, both Modeller and 'Layout' are showing a white background which has rendered the text invisble.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Most likely you need to either update your vid card drivers or double check to see if you have inadvertently installed a language pack [notably Japenese]. For some reason this causes a problem with text display as noted on other threads on the discusion board.

Hope this helps.

It's the language pack. A quick search on this forum will prove that to be the case. (Of course, you *may* have discovered some new anomoly, but statistically it's the language pack.) Also, 7.5c fixes this I believe. It should be a free upgrade for you I think.

It was the language pack. Much obliged.
