I have a user having an issue with drawing pipe networks. When they draw the pipe, the structure is not visible. A label shows up, and the structure can be found in the prospector, but is not editable in the plan view (see attached image).
I have a feeling it may be an issue with our pipe networks parts list and pipe catalog location. We have found an issue with our install that defaluts our pipes catalog to our local drives, but our parts list were created using a network drive. Several users have had an issue creating pipe networks when this has happened. However once we switched the pipe catalog to the netowrk drive the issue was resolved.
Unfortunately this user has not been as lucky as the other users. When we changed the pipe catalog location, it did not resolve the issues. If anyone has any suggestions on where to begin with fixing this that would be greatly appreciated.
FYI - I have tried the basics (layers on/thawed, pipe structure style layers on/thawed, audit and purge).
We are using Civil 3D '09.
This is holding up a project so any help would be greatly appreciated!
Strip the drawing down and post it here. Maybe one of us can figure it out for you...

Just a quick thought....If you are using an annotative block for your structure style in plan view, this could be the issue for not showing up especially if the style is set to use fixed scale from part size. Structure styles dont like blocks with annotative properties.
