grid on fill

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi all,
sorry for my english, it might be difficult to understand.

When creating a fill with transparency, a 'helping' grid appears marking the center of the screen (vertical and horizontal axes). When I move the view, the axes move always along. I attach a picture.

It is very annoying for clients to see this on the screen. I have tried to turn off all the View---Trace/Guide/Grid Options, but it is still there.

Does someone have any suggestion on how to turn it off?

Thanks in advance,

Could be the fill handles.

Go to: View > On Screen View Options > Fill Handles

Try: View > Grid Display

That might be it

Could it be a graphics card driver problem?
You guys might try updating to the latest driver, hopefully that helps.

I get it on my Mac as well. Not a problem, easy to ignore and I've never seen it affect my output. I'm sure it is a graphics issue rather than some AC entity manifesting itself.
