Any workaround for this.

Thanks in advance.


Your KiCad version is ancient, I’d recommend getting a newer one if possible.

You can maybe work around this issue by changing the graphics settings from accelerated to legacy or vice versa, but I’m not sure about the exact wording and location of these settings in that old version.

This was a known problem and is fixed in the later (5.1) versions.
