Blender 3D View Interface is freezing

When I perform any action in the 3D View like a border selection, Blender freezes. The border box is still on the screen and nothing gets selected. When I press another key or move the mouse to a different editor type, the previous action then finishes. Is there a setting under user preferences I can change to make the interface update right away?

You’ll need to provide some more specific information:

  • Blender version
  • Operating System
  • Type of video card
