I have been working with it for a few days on my Win95 box Everything looks
pretty good so far regarding the display. I would check to see what driver
is being used under control panel on your PC. I also suggest using "small
fonts" in your display. This will allow for more room to display your model
instead of having valuable screen real estate taken up with tool bars.

Good luck!
