Menu bar flickers

Postby eldrin » Sun Jan 05, 2014 12:39 pm

When dragging the main application window around, the Menu Bar flickers/blinks quite a lot.

Is there anything that can be done about that?

Win 7 x64.

I'm running CN 2.5 on Win 7 x64, but I don't have this problem on the HP laptop I'm using. When I get a chance, I'll try it on a desktop Win 7 x64 system I have. It could be a video driver issue. I assume you're only getting this on CN?

Yes, I only see this happen with CN (I'm trying out the portable edition, v2.5). I'm using the latest NVIDIA drivers for my video card (GTX 660).

Hi eldrin,

sorry but I can't reproduce the flicker either.
Is there anyone else having this problem?

Actually, on the laptop I'm using, the menu items (File, Edit, View, Options, Help) do flicker a bit if I move the window around. This does not happen with other apps I have running, including a very old copy of Ecco. Now that I know what to look for, I'll try it on my other machines later.

On my home laptop, I also see a little bit of flicker in the menu text, but barely noticeable. However, here I also see the same thing in Firefox (same v 26.0 as the other one). With Chrome, the tab labels are steady, but the url field and favorites links also shimmer a little. With Word 2007, the text is steady, but some of the icons (justification, etc) shimmer.
