Known Issues


Floaters Disappear When Editing Group Roles in Attached People Side Panel

  • VWR-25821 Editing Group Roles causes portions of the UI to disappear - The problem occurs when attempting to edit Group Roles with the People panel attached to the sidebar. The workaround is to use the |<- icon to tear the People panel from the sidebar prior to editing Group Roles.

Render Issues Related to Basic Shaders & Lighting and Shadows
There are a number of issues relating to having Basic Shaders and/or Lighting and Shadows turned On. In some cases, though not all, the impact is to older hardware.
Possible Workaround: - If you find that your FPS is slower than usual, you may notice improvement by turning Basic Shaders Off... go to Me > Preferences > Graphics > Advanced, and de-select 'Basic Shaders'. If the problem appears specific to Lighting and Shadows, go to Me > Preferences > Graphics > Advanced, and de-select 'Lighting and Shadows'.
