Hi There!

I seem to have some color bugs with Revit Architecture 2012, best described further with the attached images:

As you can see, it's not just the colors of the inserted pictture but also temporary dimensions, selected items, lines etc. However when printing it's the right colors though but still frustatred that the viewport isnt showing the right colors, compared to what i get on paper!

Just a few speccs on the GPU:

Geforce GT 130M, drivers version 296.17

And just FYI Revit is set for default settings :)

Hope you can help me out on this one!

Did you ever find a fix for this? I am having the same issue. It changed the section head color as well.

Same here. Revit MEP 2012 though. Started after window update "Platform Update for Windows 7 x64-Edition (KB2670838)"

Card: ATI FirePro V7800 (FireGL); current driver: 8.850.7.3000.

Tried reinstalling the last certified driver 8.773.1.0 with no luck.

Oddly Revit MEP 2011 and Revit MEP 2013 are unaffected.

Yep. Same here as well. Noticed it this morning. Also noticed our machines automatically updated Windows with "Platform Update for Windows 7 x64-Edition". I'm guessing this caused the issue. It has changed the blue "selection" and "pre-selection" colors to orange (Options > Graphics > Colors).

Also have seen blue dots appearing randomly at dimension string ends. Only if you zoom in closely.

I do not believe this is a graphics card issue as this is happening on all of our machines. 2012 only, not 2013.

Any solutions?

Disable Hardware Acceleration. Did the trick.

Caused by a windows update http://www.revitforum.org/architecture-general-revit-questions/12875-section-callout-heads-orange-2.html
