Referenced file/view port symbols in wrong position

That looks odd! So just to confirm you have one reference not two?

As the symbols aren't selectable I wonder if this could be a redraw issue, I am wondering if you could try restarting Vectorworks?

Is this reference far from the internal origin? Or more importantly is the referenced files internal origin far from the objects within the file.

If the symbols are part of the viewport then they wouldn't normally be selectable but you should be able to select the viewport by clicking on the symbols.

I have imported a document as a referenced view port but some of the symbols are not in the correct place and the incorrect symbols aren't selectable. Anyone got any ideas?



Just gonna say I have seen this happen with imported auto cad blocks. It may be that they've been scaled instances in auto cad
