    Try turning them both off and on again through View-User Interface?

    Try turning off hardware acceleration, in the options menu. Restart Revit, turn it back on.

    If you restart Revit and it persists, try navigating to the Help Icon > About Autodesk Revit 2018.. Once you do that exit out of that dialog. Then it should be back to normal. I know it sounds a bit odd, but I used to run into this all the time at a previous firm and even a Revit reboot would not fix it. Oddly enough toggling that dialog would fix it.

    that does sound odd, but I do still see the freeze from time to time in our office, so I will try this next time.
