Incorrect High Quality Display

Issue: High quality HLR/HLV or Wireframe display is incorrect (for example, the image resolution is low).

  2. On the Document Properties tab, select Image Quality.
  3. Drag the Wireframe and high quality HLR/HLV resolutionslider towards High.
  4. Click OK.

  2. In the dialog box, under Check, select the entity type that you want to verify.
Ensure that there is no assembly interference.
