Hi Tom,

I tried it on a different computer - problem solved. I will update the graphics driver on the problem computer as you suggested. 

Thank you for your help,

René

Not sure if you are Linux — in that case it would be part of Mesa, or on Windows it will be part of your graphics driver.  Can you try showing the same map with capping on another computer?
