Curious if anyone has had this problem before? I have contacted Side FX about this a couple times and the best answer I could get was to use Qt4 builds up until now I guess they aren't making Qt4 builds for H17 and I am really wanting to test it out. I've tried changing the UI size with the preferences and inside the houdini.env file and have tried refreshing my preferences completely and haven't found any luck or answer as to why this occurs.

Thanks!

Any chance you are using a Intel GPU? If so, you could try to roll back to a earlier driver (25.xxx.xxx i.e.) if possible.

Well, I'm having the same issues and couldn't resolve it either, but as far as I can tell it seems to be Intel GPU and driver related. Some gyu over at the Intel forums was able to fix it by not using the latest driver but some version around 25.20.xxx.xxxx. I don't know what your system specs are, but if everything was working for you till this morning you should be able to restore your system to a previous state, or install older drivers.

- Found another reference to this problem in the dell forums - if you're using one of their XPS laptops with intel graphics (HD 630 i.e.) you could try this driver: “25.20.100.6583, A06”

I had the same issue and updating the Intel UHD driver (v26.20.100.7528) fixed it for me.

I had the same issue with Intel graphics driver. Problem got resolved by changing the Houdini settings to `High Performance` to use the AMD graphics driver instead:

Before:




Change settings to use AMD graphics rather Intel:




After:
