Plant symbol with missing shapes

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I create a plant, shapes disappear within the object. See enclosed file. When I go to edit the 2D graphics of this plant the objects that had disappeared now are visible. They are visible in the Plant Definition window also. I have tried grouping and the entire graphic part of the plant disappears. I can copy and paste the 2D graphic into the drawing window and the internal objects are visible.

This is almost certainly a class visibility problem. Any time objects you know are supposed to be there are missing, check the class visibility.

In order for an object to be visible, the class of the object AND the class of any container object (Groups, symbols) that contain the object must all be set to be visible.

Good luck,

I don't see a link to the file you were going to enclose. If you can get a link to it I can take a look at it.
