I'm using an version 2019 of the software and I'm facing a problem. The nodes only appears on the screen when they are selected. This is a problem, because when I create a node, it get lost on the workspace, invisible on the screen (When I was creating the node, I took care to click "fit model").


I realized the folowing test: I create two nodes (000) and (010), and selected "fit model". After that I selected "lines">"linear nodes">"node list" and holding Shift I made a selection of all the workspace. Doing that the nodes appeard in grey collor on the screen.


Somebody can help me with this problem, please?


Thanks in advance,

In the 2019 version we made changes in the graphic engine. Please test briefly if the environment variable HW_USE_OPENCL changes the behavior.
Please do the following steps:
1. Stop all instances of HyperWorks
2. Set the environment variable to  HW_USE_OPENCL=0
3. Start HyperWorks and check if the behavior has changed when clicking Grids.


Try updating graphic driver.
