Blinking screen on program start with Cobalt theme

  • Theme: Adaptive
  • Color Scheme: Cobalt SL
  • Existing open project window at typical size or any size on the screen
  • Close program
  • Reopen program
  • The dark colors on the window blink a lot between different shades, like the monitor is not able to figure out exactly what color to display there
  • Drag to resize window will stop it, as if it triggers a final render.

Possibly caused because of switching between the computer and external monitors. I think I’ve seen it on the Mac itself though.

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) - Mojave



If you are running macOS 10.14.4, upgrade to 10.14.5 or newer. That version of macOS has quite a number of display driver issues, some of which show up with Sublime HQ products.
