Layer Visibility Not Working


I've recently upgraded to VW2017 form 2008, and Wow what an upgrade its been after 9 years!


However I can't get the layer visibility to work properly. I can only see the active layer, not the others. I have 'show/snap/modify others' highlighted. Is there something I'm missing?


Can anyone suggest a solution?


Any help much appreciated!

Check that the layers all have the same design layer scale - Vectorworks usually doesn't display different layers simultaneously if they have different scales. Also check whether or not you have View < Unified View on, plus the Unified View Options.

Under the View > Unified View Options mentioned above, make sure it's showing layers with different scales if you have them, theyre ignored by default.
