2013 HELP: Mesh detail, hexagons, circles, and LOD settings

Mesh detail, hexagons, circles, and LOD settings
-

Ever seen circles like this?
-
I have seen an increase in queries about this problem recently, so I am posting on it.
Mesh Detail
-
Want them like this?
-
Here's how to fix them.
on Viewer 3.6 
-
Preferences, Graphics tab
Advanced
  • Me (Top left)
  • Preferences
  • Graphics
  • Mesh detail, set high
It says mesh, but don't believe it.  The low mesh detail setting will also turn regular circular prims into hexagons. It probably also affects sculpties.  
-
If you are using another viewer, or if this does not fix sculptie borks, the instructions in the link below may work for you.
Debugged your Level-Of-Detail?
