I installed 2008 yesterday morning but didn't see this happening:
1. The "Press & Drag" checkbox occupies an entire line right below the browser view ID box.
2. If I point to anything within the Browser panel, the "Press & Drag" line is no longer active so it disappears, making everything shift up a notch.
3. If I select an object (i.e., Wall) the "Edit" function appears on a whole new line below the "Press & Drag" line, shifting everything down a notch.
---> All of these funtions used to appear on a common line to the right of the previous space, appearing as necessary. The bouncing up & down as commands/functions appear/disappear is totally unacceptable & currently very frustrating.
4. If I have the "Press & Drag" function checked & actually select an object, it moves as it becomes highlighted. Like a wall will move 4' from it's current location. Unchecking the "Press & Drag" function makes it difficult to simply highlight an object to view it's properties, for example.
I suspect that this is largely a graphics issue and I did just install a new Nvidia driver, but I rolled that back to the previous version in an attempt to fix this nonsense. My card is a PNY Quadro FX1400, Driver version 91.36.
Whe I first installed 2008 I'm very certain that the GUI didn't change appearance. Unless I'm having a senior moment.
