Objects in certain classes suddenly unselectable

Recommended Posts

I'd have to say this is the strangest bug I've ever encountered in over 10 years of using this program.

Suddenly, objects belonging to at least two of my classes can no longer be selected. I cannot snap to them. I can make them disappear and reappear by toggling the class visibility. Further, any new class I create exhibits this behavior. Rebooting VW and the computer has no affect on this bug.

If I recover the objects through Workgroup Referencing, they behave normally. But if I paste them back into the original document, they cannot be selected unless I have first changed their class membership. Apparently, the whole mechanism for handling classes has been corrupted within this document (note that other documents are unaffected by this problem).

Two questions: does anyone have any experience with this problem? Does anyone have a recommendation for recovering/reconstructing this file?

I have submitted a stripped-down file to bugsubmit.

Pete is it related to layer visbility or layer options?

or even the view or active layer scale?

Sound like your "Class Options" have been switched to "Show Others" Go to your organize menu and make sure the "Class Options" are set to "Show/Snap/Modify Others"

Good Luck

Katie and Mike, Ach! You're right - I must have hit that key combination inadvertantly. Wasted 3 hours dealing with this . . . Thank you both!

PS, what I've done to prevent this in the future is I've gone to the Workspace Editor and removed the keyboard shortcuts having to do with Class visibility options, since I never use any mode but Show/Modify Others.
