Plant component visibility

Question

I create plant symbols in a source document with components assigned to the various classes--they show up fine in the source document.

When I import to my working drawings, only one of the components shows, even though all the component classes (outline, fill) AND the containing class (none) are set to view.

 

Even weirder, if I create, say, a cross (two lines) for a tree centre, both assigned to outline class, only one of the lines shows.

 

It's as if one of the elements of the plant is hiding everything beneath.

 

Can anyone help?

 

vwx2020 on Windows 10.

I always work in rotated plan for the drawings, but the plants in the source document are created unrotated.

Are you Class Options set to Active Only? Class Options should "normally" be set to Show/Snap/Modify Others.

Hi Pat,

Yes, I always work with class show/snap/modify (and layer show/snap only).

I wonder if this is to do with the rotated plan. With VW2016, I had many similar problems with disappearing symbol components.

Hi MJD

 

I have a similar problem - when I edit a 2D plant graphic in the drawing, the changes don't display when I come out of the edit function.  Even odder, if I scroll over the plant, the cursor picks them up.   I'm sure I am doing/not doing something very simple, but I have no idea what.  Deeply deeply frustrating.
