Command input disappearing after panning or zooming in.

Whenever I pan or zoom on layout/paper space with the middle-mouse/scroll button, if I try and input a command immediately after panning/zooming the command input would disappear.

For example, I'll pan to a text box, attempt to enter "ED" only for the "E" or entire "ED" to disappear. Or I might try and draw a circle with the "C" input and that will disappear. Same goes for "ATE" to edit an attribute.

Basically, the first few letters of the input will disappear if I attempt to enter a command immediately after panning or zooming on layout/paper space.

This doesn't seem to happen in model space nor does it happen if I wait a small moment after panning or zooming. What can be done to fix this so I don't need to keep pausing before entering a command?

I've tried deleting the profile before and have done a few uninstalls but this problem persists. This problem was repeatable even on a new ProgeCAD DWG file so I don't believe a sample needs to be sent.

Steps for this problem again are:

1. Pan/zoom around layout/paper space using the middle-mouse/scroll button. NOT "P" pan command
2. Immediately attempt to enter any command, "ED", "ATE", C", "L", etc.

Thank you,

Try turning off hardware acceleration. Go into tools->options, look for the display tab, then click the checkbox for hardware acceleration to turn it off. See if that does the trick.

Hello Scott and thank you very much for the response. I've looked through the options and Hardware Acceleration was already disabled.
