I'm having problems with Workspace objects that are displayed poorly or incorrectly, are not displayed at all, or vanish. What can I do?

Display problems, such as faulty rendering of ribbons, badly drawn objects, or disappearance of Workspace contents, are usually due to the graphics card or the graphics driver.

  • If you do not have a recent driver, you should obtain a new driver from the vendor of the graphics card and install it. Generally, you should install the most recent stable driver, though occasionally you may need the latest driver.
  • If you do not have a graphics card that supports hardware-accelerated OpenGL, you should consider purchasing one, as Maestro makes intensive use of graphics. If you don't have such a card, you can start Maestro with the -SGL option. This allows you to run Maestro, but it may be slow.

The graphics problem could also be due to incomplete support of OpenGL 2.1 by your graphics card. In this case, you can reduce the OpenGL level to 1.2 in the Maestro Preferences panel (CTRL+, or ⌘,) under Workspace – Graphics.
