Unable to edit (or even select) visible viewports


Query: Unable to edit (or even select) visible viewports




Everything was going well (until yesterday) while using Vectorworks 2018. I had several sheets set up with a single viewport on each and had annotations within each viewport.


I did something and I can see the floor plans on the sheets - but I am unable to edit them or even select the viewport. Everything on the screen is in grey. Anyone know how I can undo this 'freezing' of sorts?

I did something similar a few years back, it turned out that i had somehow mistakenly deleted the viewports.  Open the layer view and look at the view port columns, if you still have the view ports listed here then its most likely the Class visibility as Tamsin just said.

Check the class / layer option ? Sounds like the viewport is on an inactive class
