Everything Outside of Active Edit Disappears



This is an issue that I have with contours, slabs, roads, etc. (Really anything that opens up a component for edits).
I will click into the edit mode, and everything but the active linework disappears. I have everything "on". My layers/classes and view settings are all "On" (no grayscale) and "Show/Snap/Modify Others". I cannot edit these elements without referencing the context that they are in. What am I doing wrong? This is the largest issue I have run into while using Vectorworks.

Two places to check.


1. Quick Preferences in the Mode Bar. Look for the brown rectangle icon with the eye. If it does not show click the disclosure triangle on the right and turn it on as one of your quick prefs.



2. Vectorworks Preferences:Display Tab: Make sure Show Other Objects While In Editing Modes it checked and if you prefer also the Gray Other Objects.
