I have a strange issue. Fonts in parts of the Cubase interface that are not in use are gradualy degrading in quality when I click or use other part of the interface. When I click or hover with a mouse above certain icons or text, it becomes sharp again. If I resize project window, it redraws and everything is ok again - until I start clicking or I click on some other app, open web browser etc. Also, audio files look like they are empty, there is no waveform visible. If I change color of the part so that it is different, waveform becomes visible again and stays like that. It is invisible as long as its color is the default color of the track. Btw for some reason I can’t attach more than three photos, so I will link two from imgur.
I am using Cubase with 32" UHD monitor with intel HD4600 graphics integrated in 4790K CPU. Attached images are made with this configuration (scaling in win 10 125%) but I have also tried if there is any difference with older 1680x1050 monitor and no text resizing and issue stays the same. I don’t have this kind of a problem with any other software. Rest of the configuration is 16GB memory, system SSD, 3 HDs.No other issues on system for the last few years except this one. HiDpi is off in Cubase because…well because it is unusable, but it is another story.
Cubase start up screen shows the same problem:
Here, part of the opening screen that is drawn first (recent, recording etc) becomes “low res” when left side menu opens. Left side menu is visibly better looking. Same thing is visible here with other fonts:
Here is one of the tracks.
Fonts look wrong, waveform is not visible.
As soon I starts scrolling through project, everything falls apart again, both text and graphics.
Does anyone else have similar issue? I thought that this could be solved by getting new graphics card, but I really don’t need it, I don’t play games and integrated graphics were fine up until now for all other applications. Even if I solve it by cashing out for a better GPU, it is still an obvious bug. I have experimented with different settings in Intel hd4600 panel but nothing changes.
I also have some other bugs that were mentioned in posts on forum, like the one that makes it impossible to save/reload graphic preferences. Only some of the colors are recalled, but some are not, background color always defaults back to dark grey for instance.
