If you have an issue with the cursor / crosshairs flickering constantly in Civil 3D fear not.

It is not a graphics card error, it is a bug in Civil 3D.

To fix this issue change the view on the Prospector tab of the Toolspace to "Master View" and magically the issue disappears.

This issue and fix relates to 2011 through 2013 versions of Civil 3D that I know of.

Finally! Something that worked! I've visited countless forums that suggested hardware acceleration toggle (some said "on", some said "off"). This is the only thing that worked.

Awesome, Finally something that works! I too say the hardware acceleration recommendations and that didn't work at all. updating graphics drivers had no effect. This is such a simple trick that works!
