Graphic/Digital Window: Interruptions When Using Smooth Scrolling

Issue:

The Smooth Scrolling Option in Graphics and Digital Window of CANape 14 is enabled, see:

but it does not work continuously. There are some interruptions in the scrolling.

Solution:

Go to Control Panel | Personalization | Window Colour and Appearance.

Disable the option Enable transparency.

Background:
This behaviour is related to the Desktop Windows Manager (DWM) from Windows Vista/7 with activated Aero Mode. The Aero desktop experience features a translucent glass design with subtle window animations and new window colours. These features of Windows do eat up performance which can cause interruptions in the graphic and the digital windows during measurement.
