Leonardo Great Dodecahedron 2

Sorry for the very late 'thank you' people but I have been away from my computer for some time. I realised after posting that it was simply a question of the same colour being shown for both bits of the net. I simply printed out the same pages twice on different coloured paper! Anyway, thanks Robert...

Leonardo Great Dodecahedron 2

Would like to attempt this model but the net for the outer layer seems to be missing. Can anyone help? :( Thanks.

Great Stella

Thanks for all that stuff, Robert. I obviously just need more practice and, I guess, some extensive manual reading! Just loaded Great Stella on my wife's desktop (networked with mine) and Stella behaves fine. Her desktop also has a dual monitor configuration so the puzzle continues. Thanks again for...

Great Stella

Hi Robert, it is looking like I have more problems than the simple screen redraw workaround. I thought I would have a look at making the final stellation of the icosahedron and checked your notes on it. I then tried to measure the dodecahedral edge of the net using measurement mode. I seemed to sele...

Stella

Hi Robert, a bit of disappointing news. Whilst there has been a great improvement in the stability of the Stella windows, the problem does still occur. I have noticed it since upgrading to Great Stella. It is interesting to note that, if I have been looking at a print preview, then this is the view ...

Thanks for that link, Robert, it set me on the right track. I had a feeling it was something to do with the NVidia graphics card and my having multiple display units. After a bit of searching around in the NVidia setup area I discovered that it was possible to change settings for individual programs...

Small Stella

Hi Robert. I have been experimenting with the problem and have the following observations:- After starting the program and leaving the default icosahedron and its net on the screen the windows turn white after a minute or two. 'Undo' will bring the images back again (albeit with an error message as ...

Sorry - should have mentioned that the white areas seem to appear quite randomly - I am not performing any keypresses or mouse clicks when it occurs.

Hi Robert, thanks for your prompt reply. I suspected it would be a problem and not a feature! My computer is a desktop, home-built and now a few years old (4?). I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. The processor is a Intel i5-3570 CPU @ 3.40 GHz. I have 8gb of memory installed and the graphics card ...

Small Stella

Hi, I am a Stella newbie so please forgive me if this question is easy! I notice that the two side by side windows containing the polyhedron and its net seem to randomly blank out to white. Also, when looking at a print preview of the net, the main screen returns leaving the print preview in the two...
