Anyone else suffer from this? Usually happens to me after an undo, the screen text all goes bold and massive so you can't see what's going on

Yeah it kind of leads to crazy behaviour and I end up saving and restarting the program to fix it. It leads to solids turning wire frame and all sorts for me

I also have this behavior on my PC. I've never seen this on mac. It happens to me after many actions but usualy it is text editing, undo, redo. It also announces software crash in a close future :-). The only way is to save the file quickly and run the software again.

I never got this on a Mac. It must be a PC thing.

Though, I get many other things, like :
- default font switching from "Arial" to exotic "Arial Hebrew",
- dimension colors switching from blue to red for arcs and angle dimensions....

I use PC. This happens quite often. For me, this is a sign that the program will crash soon. Therefore, often save work, but better to restart the program.
Shark is the only living creature in my computer, lives its own life. I never know what will happen next.

A bitter experience suggests:
1. Autosave every 20-30 steps.
2. Each new level of detail save as a new file(project_1_1, project_1_2, project_1_3 etc...)
