Drawing flashing in Landmark 2019

Question

I just downloaded Landmark 2019 onto my Dell (Windows 10 Pro 2.6 GHz 64 bit)  When I create a new drawing and add lines or shapes and use the pan tool to move around, the screen begins to flash with sort of a negative image of the drawing.  The grid lines are surrounded by light strips and the area between the grids is dark.  I am just starting to play with 2019 but I have never seen anything like this.  I have been using 2016 and have Service Select.  Did not like 2017 and never downloaded 2018.  Is there a compatibility issue with my operating system?

Here is photo of example.  The dark blue flashes to the normal white background.  Note that old drawings brought into 2019 do not do this.

Are you using Intel integrated graphics?

Do you have a discrete graphics card installed on your machine?

I've seen this before.

The interm solution we found is to reset the Vectorworks>Preferences>Display>Navigation Graphics to Best Compatibility.

 

Yes - this is new in VW2019 afaik.

BCD:  Changing the navigation graphics from Best Performance to Best Compatibility worked.  Thanks.
