Did you try right clicking on the Point Groups heading in the toolspace and select Update?

Okay, What I have found is this.  Our survey department also makes a point drawing that one can x-ref into the drawing to see all the shots.  The points drawing was x-refed in and I was creating a hatch area.  Immediatly after the hatch was drawn, the points would disappear.  After unloading the points drawing, I did the same steps and the points in my topo drawing stayed.  I don't know why.  what I also found is that when a closed polyline is drawn for a hatch boundary and then picked inside the area the points vanish.  If the polyline is selected, the points stay.  Even if the hatch is analyzing everything visible, and its looking at the points drawing... what's it doing removing the actual points from my drawing?

 

Todd, the drawing is too large to post.

I just had this exact same issue. And I was hatching. Did anyone figure out why this is happening. It has deleted all of my points in the file deleting all of the topographic informatin. (See image)

Were the points added through a database or did you just insert points? If database, go to Survey tab on prospector and try to reinsert points into drawing.

The points were just manually inserted.

 

I was able to open a previous version of the model from this morning and export those points, then import them back into my model with no issues. (They are still there at the moment.......)

 

It really doesn't make much sense why all the points just vanished...........

Has anyone found a cause and/or solution for these disappearing points?
