Sliding UI vertically outward when cursor is moving in sidebars
Closed, ArchivedPublic


System Information
Acer W3-810 tablet, Windows 8.1 with Bing 32 bit (6.3, Build 9600), Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator

Blender Version
Broken: 2.76b Hash: f337fea

The sidebar UI slides vertically outwards with repeating image of the UI (Think old school Windows being able to cover the screen with the error popup). Graphic driver may crash from usage. I know it's not really the best thing to run Blender on but I don't plan on doing anything intensive.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Issue is most likely hardware or driver specific. may not be able to replicate. Or just buy a Acer W3-810.

Yes, this is driver issue, we cannot do anything about it. You can try to:

  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date.
  • Ensure your GPU driver supports at least OpenGL 2.1.
  • Try the latest build from our buildbot.
  • Try to start Blender in factory settings (--factory-startup commandline option) (this will ensure whether this is a userpref or addon issue or not).
  • Try to tweak OGL settings in UserPreferences, System tab.
  • Try to tweak your GPU driver settings (e.g. try different values between 'performance' and 'quality' if you have such slider, etc.).
  • Try to place this dll next to your blender.exe (software OGL, will be slow, but will show whether this is a driver issue or not).

Interesting little device that! It's barely useful for Blender, but it could work a bit.

According to me, the main thing to try is:
User prefs -> System -> Draw method -> Set to "draw overlap"

Yeah, that seems to work fine. Thanks!
