How to Display Smooth Circles in Solidworks 2017 Drawings?

I have a new Windows 10 Workstation which exceeds the recommended spec. for Solidworks 2017. All works well but circles are very poor definition when zoomed in - they are displayed very jagged and not smooth at all - see attachment.

I've tried all sorts of settings for the Nvidia Quadro P4000 graphics card and anti-aliasing and image quality options in Solidworks, but none seem to fix it.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

In document properties under image quality you can change the edge quality with the "Shaded and draft quality HLR/HLV resolution" slider. This is mostly aesthetic setting, the finer you set this the slower Solidworks will run. For renders and presentations setting this to a higher setting makes them more crisp. Under normal operation I find that it slows down the computer too much.

You need to change the resolution in the part file then remake the drawing and the hole will be cleaner.
