Viewport not refreshing/working

This message was originally posted by bigteks on 02/26/2008 20:30:40
The contents of the viewport seems to be whatever was in the screen before I pulled up K-3D. Like I have it minimized right now. If I maximize it while I am here starting a new thread in this forum, the viewport shows the current bitmap of this forum with the text I am typing right now, as if the viewport is a window into the desktop behind it (but the view is a snapshot from the moment it was maximized).
This is strange because the first time I installed and ran it worked fine. Although it did this at first, it stopped after a while. I created an object I liked very much and saved it. After exiting though, I have not been able to get the viewport to work right since. The viewport never updates no matter what I do. I just upgraded to 0.6.7.0 all-inclusive install and ran the variable update fix and it is still doing the same thing.
OK - This is interesting - as I was writing this I remembered the first thing I did after I installed it was run all the tutorials, which I did not do on any subsequent runs. Apparently running the viewport tutorial temporarilly fixes this problem - I just tried it and now when I open my project I can see my object in the viewport. But if I exit and restart the viewport doesn’t work any more, until I run the viewport tutorial again.
Is this expected or known?

I am running XP SP2. GeForce 6150, Athlon X2 Dual-core processor if that helps. Also the viewport is a little unpredictable - it’s not deterministic for the work around - sometimes running the tutorial gets the viewport working, sometimes not. Sometimes it works in the tutorial and then doesn’t work in my document.
It seems to start working at the point in the viewport tutorial where it starts demonstrating the RMB drag. Up to that point the viewport is blank/full of garbage. When the tutorial mouse starts dragging in the viewport window, the coordinate system becomes visible and it seems to work. However RMB dragging in the viewport window myself does not seem to have the same effect - it seems like it only works when the tutorial does it.

Hi again!
Try changing from the viewport panel type to another type and the back. Sometimes this fixed a similar problem i had.
I don’t know if this happens on the new 0.7 version. Soon we will have weekly snapshots, and you’ll be able to test it.
Cheers!
