White or black box around cursor

SketchUp supports real-time 3D drawing, you must make sure your display settings are optimized for 3D. If you see a white or black outline around your cursor in SketchUp, you can usually fix this by increasing the color quality for your display.
Note: For some older graphics cards, this might not work. In that case, you should try updating your graphics driver. For more information about how to update a graphics driver, click here.
