objects unelectable in classes when changing views

Recommended Posts

Hey friends,


After importing standard AIA classes into a new doc, the glazing class seems to constantly turn itself grey after moving the arrow off of it or un-selecting it.  This makes the objects un-selectable.  The same with the none class.  I have gone into preferences and change the open GL quality, have restarted VW and nothing seems to fix this.


It's a pretty simple geometric drawing.  I was just getting started.  I might understand this if ti was something super complex where there was a lot of information to process but that's not the case here.  There is a similar thread form 2015 but it didn't help and I thought that was old enough to start a new one.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

I had a quick look and it seemed to be working fine for me. I noticed the none class was greyed but it stayed on visible when I changed it. Tried restart?

Yeah, need to update that.


I'm having the same issue with a different file I just started.  I did start it on my desktop and now having the issue when opened on my laptop

I'm not seeing it, either.


Grasping at straws:  Are you switching in and out of unified views?  Are you using standard naming?  And is auto classing enabled?  Do your computers somehow share user preferences?


Now, I'm not certain how any of those would cause the behavior you are seeing.  But with no scripts and no saved views, that's all I can think of.

So I saw the problem, but I have no idea what is causing it.


In the Class_Issues file, I switched to a Top/Plan view, right clicked on one of the object and selected Activate Class and everything became selectable and stayed that way as I changed views.


I did not see a problem in the Jug file.

OK, good (?) to know someone else saw this.  I'll keep tracking it and resubmit if need be.  A bug maybe?


Thanks all for your help.
