    Hi all,

    I just installed the Standalone on my new PC, and the menus go haywire when I click them, sort of flicker and then disappear. I tried updating to the newest Nvidia drivers, but had the same results.

    Any ideas what the solution might be? I can’t save or render or do much beyond playing with particles (which was always my favourite thing anyway).

    Hi Elvis! Do you have multiple monitors? That’s an issue for some people — disabling the second monitor often fixes it, and some have said that you can re-enable the second monitor again and things are fine.

    Also, reboot after installing if you haven’t tried that.

    This is the 2021 version, right? If none of that helps see if you can download the previous (2020.5) release to see if it does it too. If you can’t get that version anymore contact me directly.

    Hiya! That fixed it. I just unplugged and replugged the second monitor and it seems to be working just fine. Cool. Now to wrap my head around the 3D part of things.
