Viewport not showing what is outside of crop

Question

First of all sorry for my rubbish title, could think what to write!!

So in VW2017 when editing your viewport crop you could see (in grey) what was outside of your crop, I find this useful. I have noticed however that in VW2018 this doest seem to happen? Is it a feature that just needs to be turned back on?

 

I have (hopefully) attached two images to show what I mean. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Should be controlled under Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Display > Show Other Objects while in editing modes.

Hi JimW

 

Thanks for the quick response. 

 

I just had a look and the 'show other objects while in editing modes' is already checked? (I've tried unchecking and re-checking with no luck)

Just tested here on a fleshed out file and no, it is not working as expected. It isn't completely nonfunctional but it's behaving differently than I remember. Checking now.

For Design Layer Viewports, it works, showing the rest of the model in grayed wireframe when editing the crop object, with darker wireframe within the crop.

However, on a sheet layer, the "Other Objects" being shown when i toggle the setting seem to be the other viewports on the sheet layer but not the rest of the model contained in the viewport im actively editing. I just tried the same test in 2017 and got the same result. This seems unfamiliar but I'll confer with the techs and see what's going on or if I simply never noticed the change before.

Again thanks for looking into this Jim

In my copy of VW2017 it shows the rest of the visible layers/classes of the design layer(s) in grey when resizing or moving the crop, maybe something got broken in SP4 on Mac?
My settings are in the screen capture below when double clicking on a sheet layer viewport.

That menu is set to edit the Design Layer (Direct Section editing is new in 2018) not to edit the crop, the same options do appear above. That however seems separate from the issue itself.

Yep you are right, my apologies - I'm rushing things!

You would think I would have spotted it with how big the screenshot was, must be home time

 

Thanks, its all ok now.

Did this ever get sorted out? My work around is to delete the crop box then the entire layer comes into view, you can then re draw it where you want.

Yes it was solved as above. What are you having an issue with specifically?

 

Sorry for the late reply.
