Section Viewports Always Showing 'Empty' Status

Recommended Posts

Any reason why my section viewports continuously indicate 'Empty' status (red 'X')? They definitely have objects in them, the objects are not hidden, and the referenced design layers are not set to 'invisible' (reasons why VW Help says the 'Empty' status would be shown). If I select each one individually (there are 6 of them on the sheet layer), I can update them but whenever I change views or move around to other layers they revert to the 'Empty' status. Its a real pain particularly since the red 'X's show up when I print. They do show the 'Out of Date' status as expected when the referenced model is modified. The viewports are set to render in 'hidden line'. BTW, the plan viewport adjacent to them displays correctly all the time.

Jeffrey Ouellette solved this problem for me via the VectorWorks mailing list. I had the 'Save viewport cache' document preference turned off.
