"X" displayed on windows and doors

These are 2D loci which control where the wall gets cut in Plan View.  They are in the NonPlot Class and if you can see them that is either the active Class or you have that Class visible.  

 

The NonPlot Class should always be set to not visible.  It is the Class that is used for drawing elements that are not meant to be seen.

Also, FYI, locus points don't print and never get exported to PDFs.

 

Locus points are simply points in space (X,Y) and are indicated in Vectorworks with the X glyph. You can add your own with the 2D Locus tool (hotkey "0" zero). There is also a 3D Locus tool which incorporates Z coordinates as well.

I'm a Vectorworks novice. I'd like to employ the services of those who are more expert. I basically use the software to create home floor plans and small commercial new build and remodel projects. Is there a place online where I can employ the services of those that are more expert?

I've set the NonPlot to "not visible" but they didn't go away.

 

Do you still see them when you make None the active class?

Did you set NonPlot to Active as well as invisible?

 

The Active class (the one checked) is always visible regardless of the other class visibility settings.

 

So if you make a class active and invisible it still shows. The next time you make another class active those objects should hide.

You can see what class is controlling the Loci by selecting a Door, clicking Settings, then in the 2D Visualization section looking at what the "2D Loci" are assigned to. If this class is turned off and is not active, then the Loci should not be visible.

Or "force select" a loci (right click then choose force select directly over a loci) and you can see what class it's in in the info palette

I'm pretty sure that if it's part of a Door object, you can't directly Force Select the Loci or any parts of the Door. Instead it just selects the entire Door object.

Are you saying those loci in the drawing appeared without you placing them there? If you select one what class is it in?

I have my floor layout as active and active class as none.  Yes, I was working on this file and everything was going swimmingly and then I inserted a 2nd double patio sliding door and the entire drawing started giving me loci when drawing new rectangles or inserting doors.  I closed and restarted VW and they were still there.  You can see in the second clip, the first slider I inserted has no issues, that work was done yesterday.  Did I accidentally turn on some setting I'm not familiar with?  I have not tried printing yet but it is distracting while modeling. 

Im attaching the file for reference.  Thank you!

Just click in the 2nd column next to that class in the Visibility palette to make it invisible

Many thanks Tom W - feel pretty foolish now to have asked the q in the first place :))
