It shouldn't behave any differently on a PC or a laptop. Did you try viewing the same stellation on each? When you say "it's not there", what do you mean exactly? Does it continue to show the original shape, or does it show nothing at all? Maybe email me a screen shot (see the Contacts page on the main site for email address). I would need more detail to have any idea what's happening.

Thanks,
Rob.

For others following this thread, Graham contacted me off-forum and the issue is resolved. No bug, just needed directions to the Shift+E setting (Display->Vertex & Edge Options->Show Stellation Edges).

With this enabled, you can see the edges of the stellation, even in the base view, so as you hit Up-arrow to step through the stellations, you can see both the base model and its stellation's edges in the one view.
