PyCharm Interface Bug
So I wanted to try out PyCharm IDE with Python and choose from Jetbrains.com which at this time is at v2.0.3. I installed it on the machine in my work envoirnment and all was well.
But when I installed it on my home machine the interface was all over the shop and totally unusable…I was not such a crappy hamper! (see below)
Solution: Update Graphics Card Drivers
I had a good look around the web and could not find anyone with the same issues. I tried a few things to trouble shoot the problem including updating Java and changing envoirnmental vairables. And then I remembered that I had an issue before with 3D design software which turned out to be graphics card related. So I decided to try updating the drivers for my graphics card and restarted PyCharm Edu and in the imortal words of Alan Partridge ‘Back of the net’ it worked 🙂
