In the procedural editor, sometimes the screen redraws while I'm dragging a line from one module to another, and when this happens it blows away the line I'm drawing. And I have to start over on that line. It's not a show stopper, but it's a bit frustrating.

    I should have also specified, that it seems to happen when it redraws about the same time that I release the mouse button.

    What do you mean when you say the screen redraws? What exactly is it that happens?

    Well, once in a while the window seems to repaint, meaning that the window area turns white and then all the module boxes and connectors redraw on top of it. It takes a split second but it's apparent that they are being repainted from scratch. I am suspicious that it might have to do with the tooltips that appear when the mouse hovers over a connector while dragging a line. Let me know if I can explain it in a better way. I'm not sure what else to say. I can try screen recording if I can find software for it. I'll be happy to try a test Jar without the tool tips incase thay are part of the problem.
