3d Locus not visible in wireframe Orthogonal view

Question

Is there a setting for the 3D Locus visibility when in wireframe ?  I've used it before with no problems, but now in any file I open I can not see the Locus points, if I select all then I can see a bounding box around them but not see them. I must of changed a setting accidentally for this to happen & can not find any setting for it.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Mine was set to only in wireframe & even when setting it to always visible it is not shown

I've had an ongoing issue where 3D locus points randomly don't show up in 3D views despite the preference setting. Definitely buggy.

Thanks Andy, I'll quit looking for another setting & just go with it!

I am also encountering this issue.  I feel like it was introduced with SP4 as I have never had it before this update.  It doesn't matter if it is a new file or old file 3d loci are not visible in any view other than 2d plan.

Any resolution to this? I've tried all the options listed here.

Vectorworks > Preferences > Display Tab > Display 3D loci >> Always/Only in Wireframe/Never

 

And restarted VW. can't seem to get 3d loci to be visible in any other view other than Top/Plan.

Also running 2018 SP4.

This bug seems to come and go randomly for me. It reappeared this morning, and I realized that when 3D loci aren't showing up, neither are RW Lights (which makes sense as they're both glyph-based objects whose display size is relative to your screen and not your zoom factor).

 

It seems to mainly affect Loci and Lights within Symbols, while you're editing within the container.

I have started using the 3D polygon tool & drawl a vertical line in a different color to the height I would have the 3D loci & use this point to click to in making a nurbs curve. THis is the only work around I could figure quickly to keep working in 3D

Kevin, I can get the same to happen, when turning off the Unified View they are visible. Wish I had figured that out when having to finish a model using 3D polygons to find my points.

Thanks!
