    Hello MDL! I just installed Office 2010 on Windows 8 RTM (activated, just in case that would make a difference in this for some odd reason...) and I noticed that all of the office products have slight graphical issues. For example, in word, the shadow behind the virtual paper is not rendered correctly and the shadow on the file button (clicked and unclicked) is not rendered correctly. Anybody else have this problem?

    I'm running Office 2010 on several machines but have no issues. My GPUs are mostly simple as there is no gaming. Running the genuine drivers from the manufacturers and everything is quite well here

    I have this exact problem! I think it also depends on the GPU drivers.

    So let's do a little questionnaire, shall we?

    1) Are you experiencing graphical glitches in Office 2010 on Windows 8?

    2) What is your exact GPU model?

    3) What is your GPU driver version?


    For me...
    1) Yes.
    2) Intel Sandy Bridge (HD 3000)
    3) 9.17.10.2875

    hopefully sometimes you clowns get put into the quiet corner if not learning that your post are not welcome on MDL. It is no fun to talk about illegal action as MDL got DMCAs on that. Realize, that you guys are helped here! Working against this unique system, you will stand by yourself one day, when MDL has to shut down because of YOU. learn it, god dammed :eek:

    But which GPU? Intel? AMD? NVIDIA?

    So far, only two posts have included GPU information, and both are Intel. So I'm wondering if this is an Intel-only problem. But two posts are not a lot of go by, so please specify which GPU you use (and if it's Intel, what driver version?)

    Bump. Surely there are others who have experienced this issue? If so,

    1) What's your GPU?
    2) GPU drivers?
    3) x86 or x64 Office?
