    Hi folks

    Recently my Preview on my MacBook Pro has begun doing this insanely annoying, weird "flickering". It makes it impossible for me to read texts and is generally just really annoying.

    It does it every time Preview either auto saves or when I save manually.

    In class the other day, I noticed my friends older MacBook Air did the same thing.

    I'm working with a Macbook Pro 13" TB 2016.

    I uploaded a video showing the problem:

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Just noticed there is an available update 10.12.3. Will update as soon as possible and update thread if it solves the issue
    EDIT2: Updated to 10.12.3. Same issue.

    There's been a series of issues with PDFs/Preview from the start of macOS 10.12... The most recent betas of 10.12.4 are said to include improved PDF frameworks... haven't installed the beta myself, so I can't confirm if this issue and all the other PDF issues are fixed.

    I have seen the same on 10.12.3 on my MacBook 12", hoping for some improvements in the next release. For now it's an annoyance but not a show-stopper.
