I have C3D 2013 and recently my profile labels for sag and crest vertical curves are disappearing. When I first open the drawing and the program goes through loading I can see the labels but once it stops loading they disappear. All my levels are on, I have ran an audit several times, I have deleted the labels in the manager and replaced them but once I save and quit they are no longer visible. I am able to see the labels through an xref of the drawing but it appears that the labels have been reset to their default position and not where I had adjusted them to view them within the viewport. I have attached pictures of what it looks like. Can someone tell me what's causing this and how to fix it?
Looks like you are using 2013. Can you please list your computer specs, specific version of autocad and whether or not this happens on one machine or multiple?
Please verify that ALL layers are on and thawed. It sounds like there is a layer frozen but you said they were all on. Once you confirm that that's not it. We can try to think of something else.
Unfortunately I'm still on 2012. So I can't test it directly.
Civil 3D 2013 64 bit SP1.1 - version 10.0.1464.0
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Intel Core i3 - 3.30 GHz
AMD Radeon HD 6450
As of right now I am the only person running this program here so its just on my machine. I have all of the layers on and thawed.
I have been working with this drawing for a couple months now with no problems until now. Do you think the recent update could have had something to do with it?
It's possible. There are a couple of recent post dealing with DRef problems. But you didn't mention the profile being a Data Reference.
I tried creating a new profile view and placed it near my first profile view (that has missing profile labels). The labels showed up in my new profile view but when I saved, closed and reopened the drawing the profile vertical curve labels were missing like in the first profile view. As I said I can see the labels through an xref that I have and I wouldn't mind this problem so much if the labels remained where I had placed them, but they get reset to their defaut insert position after a save and close of the profile drawing that the labels are in. I am running out of ideas, anybody able to help?
Would you mind posting the drawing so one of us can take a look?
My drawing is too large to post. Like almost 5 MB. Know of a way around the max file size?
Update: I seem to have found a way around my problem but I am still curious as to what is causing it. I locked the layer that the labels are on and it seems to keep my labels displayed and how I have arranged them. But if I unlock the layer, save, close and reopen, the labels will not be displayed.
I have this same problem with ALL my 2013 drawings on every machine. It's definitely a problem when you've customized several labels. Have you found any other work-arounds?
