Same behavior at my System - the "jumpy" thing is a cascading of the remaining drawings as smaller windows .... in a fraction of a second. Weird ;-)

All is working okay now in QCAD 3.1 Beta:).

Interesting. Probably related to the update to Qt 4.8.4 in QCAD 3.1 Beta. Thanks for letting me know!

This problem is happening again in 3.1.3

Comment by Andrew (andrew) - Wednesday, 03 July 2013, 16:41 GMT+1

Yes. It's the lesser from two evils:
Qt 4.7.4: jumpy windows
Qt 4.8.4: focus loss, unselectable menus, etc.

Okay, thanks Andrew.
Well for me yes I think I would rather live with 'Jumpy' windows rather than incur the problems with Qt 4.8.4!
