  1. Just to get this out of the way - No, it's not classes turned off and it's not classes or layers buried deep in symbols. It's something else. I'm having an issue where Spotlight Symbols are not appearing. They are there - I can select them and they are outlined in orange. I make a rectangle selection around the area where the objects should be and the previously invisible objects are now still invisible but outlined in orange as if selected. If I click away from the selection the selection disappears and the objects are still missing. This is in Top/Plan or any other 3D view. If I select symbols and manipulate them in some way (flipping, nudging, or toggling OIP checkboxes such as "Use GDTF Geometry" or "Flip 2d Legend) they appear as normal! I can select all of the spotlight symbols in the drawing, get them to appear, save the file, close and reopen the file, and then symbols are back to being invisible. Once this behavior has begun, 2D Insertion Tool only inserts invisible symbols. They are there, selectable as described above, but will not render. Previously existing (non spotlight) symbols in the drawing remain however. If the symbols are invisible on design layers, they do not appear on sheet layer viewports either. This behavior began in VW2022, and stays with the file when exported to VW2021. NOTE: I've rebuilt this file once already from scratch in VW2022 to try to solve this behavior, because I thought it was related to the "Enable Legacy 2D features" check box, which had been checked. Legacy features are OFF and there are no Screen Plane objects in this drawing. Any ideas? Here you can see that I've made (35) appear. but another fixture on SR is just ghosting. Here you can see I've selected a bunch of symbols.
  2. I'm having an issue with VW selecting whole objects from components of thet object that are not visible. For example, I am attempting to select a line drawn at a wall by selecting the line thats visible at the door. VW keeps selecting the door rather than the line even though the door head is not visible. How can i make VW select only whats visible? Thanks.
  3. When I group objects, symbols become invisible but still there, this happens in wiremode for me. Sometimes it works to just rerender to OpenGL and back to wiremode. Symbols are mostly 2016 and older. All objects have same class, "ingen" in my language. Active class is "ingen", and active layer is visible. I use 2017SP1, and problems occur on both mac and pc, and on three pc's I have tried. I have tried to change stuff in preferences, but nothing works. I have seen post on this since November but I have seen no solutions. Have someone found a solution to this problem?
