F12 is not a good way to do that because lots of other things need to 
be redrawn as well. Far better to make sure that the ArtWorks window 
is fully open and selected, then press Ctrl+F8 to switch to outline 
mode. Press Ctrl+F5 to switch to anti-aliased mode, which causes a 
full redraw.

Geminus can cache the results of ArtWorks rendering. Using the above 
Ctrl+F8, Ctrl+F5 trick, you can make sure that caching cannot spoil 
the results.
