Lines are not appearing while drawing them; objects do not follow the curser when moved

by Roger Blank
(Evergreen)

Normally when drawing lines, I pick a start point and while dragging the line to another point I have always seen the line before picking the 2nd point. Something changed and now and that line is invisible and will not show up until i pick the 2nd point.

Also when moving an object,i use to see its previous location ghosted in and see it move with the cursor, but now do not see it move until the 2nd point is selected.

When copying an object, i use to see the object while moving; now it is invisible until i pick the 2nd point.

It seems like i am not able to see items during a command like before... feels like i am blind or something....
