How To Stop The Flashing?

Recommended Posts

Just upgraded from 2008 to 2012, as I move the cursor across the drawing the background flashes from salmon to tan when the cursor crosses a line or touches an object.

It's like a strobe light & it's maddening. I've search the help app with no results.

How do I turn this off & how can I get the background to be plain ole boring white, like it used to be?

Thanks for any help!

Man, I was soooo close. I made it all the way to the Interactive tab but never found the Appearance Settings button.

Thanks so much it was actually giving me a raging headache.

Glad it helped.

you may also choose to disable the Interactive>Selection Highlighting>Animation to calm things down even more.
