I have a drawing label that seems to be in limbo. I know it somehow ended up in a class that it's not supposed to be in, but I've turned on every single class and still cannot see it. I've also tried making it appear using custom selection to no avail. Is there another way to grab this object?
So I look at my LX Plan sheet layer last night and all my lamps are gone... Lamps still exist and behave normally when working in design layers, but upon playing around I realize their visibility in my sheet layer is controlled by a different class. The lamps themselves are in various classes, but all in the same design layer. I have confirmed they are still in the correct classes, which are turned on in the sheet layer. The symbols and their components themselves (including symbols within instrument symbols like S4 body) are either 'none' or 'lighting-incandescent', 'lighting-led' etc, which I have confirmed are all turned on in the sheet layer. Eventually I realize that the visibility in the sheet layer of all my missing lamps is controlled by 'POS-us truss' which is a class I made recently. Nothing in the object info indicates that any lamps are in this class. I turn the class on, save, then restart. Joy of joy, the lamps are gone again. I eventually figure out their visibility is now controlled by a completely different class, also created recently. Restarted my computer and problem persists. Creating an entirely new viewport seemed fine, but there are legends and notations in my old sheet layer I don't want to have to redo, especially if this could just happen again. When mentioned the problem to someone this morning, he mentioned having the same issue but not necessarily in sheet layers. He said he turned it on one day and the problem went away, but that just leaves me with hoping this problem is magically fixed - somehow, someday. For what it's worth the other guy is a Mac user and I am on Windows 10. Anyone else have this/know the cause or solution?
I would like to have an option to control overall viewport class visibilities and overrides. Now I control it in Organization/Visibilities or with an Eyedropper copy the properties, but having 100 viewports and many classes it is hard to keep track of everything. For example I have 100 viewports of demo plans, 100 viewports of plans, 100 RCPs and 100 demo RCPs, 500 interior elevations and all of them have to look with particular graphic attributes. I suggest to have Visibility & Override Styles for Classes and Layers. So when updating a style the class visibilities and overrides of all viewports would be updated. Do you have other suggestions how it can be done now besides controlling class visibilities from Organization/Visibilities or copying properties with an Eyedropper?
