Crop object shows up in design layer after double-click to edit design layer - strange behavior


Hello -


VW2017 Architect - SP3 - Mac issue


One of our installations of VW is exhibiting strange behavior.  Here's what's happening...


1.  Double click on viewport on Sheet Layer that contains no crop object - select Edit - Crop

2.  Create new crop rectangle (Class '0' - default line wt. 0.13, line color = black)

3.  Exit Viewport Crop

4.  Double click on same viewport on Sheet Layer - select Edit - Design Layer

5.  Crop rectangle drawn in step 2. (above) now appears in the Design Layer, in Class '0' - but line color is green, line wt. is 2.54.


The crop rectangle should NOT be showing up as an object in the Design layer.  And when returning to the Sheet layer, the green rectangle is visible at the perimeter of the viewport.  This occurs on every file now.  Not sure why this started happening.  This was happening before and after installation of SP3.


Anyone have any idea about what may be going on?


Thanks -

Somehow the "Add Reference Crop Object" checkbox has been turned on in the Edit Viewport dialogue box. Uncheck that and you should be back to normal.
