Cura 2.7 3D interface is gone!

Hi Ultimakers,

I have encountered a problem with Cura 2.7, whilst playing with the support structure settings, the 3D view went blank and I thought it was just a crash and quit.  I reloaded Cura and still nothing, but also the view menu and the view mode button are devoid of any options, see below.

There was an unusual 'configuring windows' thing that happened when I restarted, because I have all updates turned off, I figured the antivirus may have done this.  I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, on an i7 with 12Gb ram.  I reinstalled Cura a couple of times and updated the Nvidia diver (Gforce GT 630) to the latest version but it's the same issue.  Just for kicks, I cloned a clean windows 7 VM in Virtual box and installed Cura 2.7 there and after enabling hardware 2d and 3d acceleration it worked fine, as you would expect.

I'm at a loss what is going on here and would greatly appreciate some help.

Kind regards.

    Ok I fixed it.

    I went to Preferences > Configure Cura > Plugins > Solid View (was disabled)

    So I turned it back on and restarted Cura, all be it in ‘compatibility mode’.

    So then go Preferences > Configure Cura > General > Viewport Behaviour > [uncheck] Force layer view compatibility mode (restart required)

    All is now working again.

    Yay.

    Hi ahoeben,

    Thanks for your contribution :c)

    Yes it got set automatically, I thought it may have been a 'safety' feature to avoid breaking the graphics hardware, I've had similar things happen in other software. Will your fix make it into an official update?

    Best regards.
