Re: V4.0 -- screen graphics update problems
Hi David, has you Mathematica 3.0 still installed ? You should look to the fonts directory of Windows. Mathematica may install a second copy of some of the math fonts "Math1 Bold" instead "Math1-Bold". I have had similar problems until I removed my Mathematica 3.0 and the old Trurtype fonts. Don't ask me why.
