vwks 2011 cannot select any walls anymore

Recommended Posts

Ok so this is the latest in a series of weirdness I am experiencing with 2011. So I am merrily working away on a project working back & forth in 3d and for some reason now I cannot select any wall door or window in the file. I try to click on them or lasso them and nothing. When I do a "custom selection" on walls it shows that they are selected in the info dialog but they are not highlighted. when I do a "select all" they do not show up highlighted. When I export the file to 2010 same thing. When I go back using time machine and get the early version from this morning I can select them. I fixed disk permissions. no difference. WTF... I hate to loose a days work but... Any ideas ?

Another thing, previously I was in a 3d front or side view and tried to draw a line to use as a guide. I draw the line and nothing shows up on the screen, but it shows a line in the info pallet. Am I missing something ?

Recently on another file when i create a simple roof from a rectangle and try to change the default hip configuration to a gable configuration after it is created, the program freezes, the dreaded spinning beach ball. I exported the file to 2010 and there is no problems.

Thank you for any suggestions

I have 2011 architect sp5 on a

ok so I figured out the second problem showing 2d objects in 3d. this is controlled by the unified view options which you can get to by the view menu or toggle to it by using the button (looks like a stack of paper) on the far right of the data bar next to the tea kettle. duh x2
