There I was, fooling around in the CUI window adding panels to my Home ribbon, then when I was through, I noticed all my points disappeared. Trying to figure out what went wrong, I learned;
1. my points are not missing, just not visible in the model tab. They exist, they show up in toolspace>points, and in layout views.
2. they are as if they are on a frozen layer. I can't see them and I can't select them with a cursor window, but I can select them with qselect, which I know they are selected because it tells me so on the command line.
3. not all points are gone from sight in the model tab, just the ones which were on and thawed while I was tinkering with CUI.
If it was vice-versa, i.e. I could see them in the model but not in a viewport I could blame it on viewport freeze, but not so. I messed with PDMODE and PDSIZE, of course to no avail.
I am working in Civil 3D 2010 and more than a little baffled.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just a couple of guesses. Make sure your point groups are in the expected order in the Toolspace. It's possible that one with no display was shifted to the top. Go through you're point styles to make sure that the points are still set to display in the model.
If you can't figure it out you could try inserting the drawing in a fresh drawing create from your template.
Bingo. In point style I had the visibility turned off. I love it when the answer's simple, but I hate it when it I don't see it.
Thank you very much, Allen.
