Disappearing layout tabs. Lots of work lost!!

I have a major problem.


Whilst detailing the reinforcement on a number of precast units the majority of my layout tabs vanished!


I changed workspaces from my own custom setup to ASD Reinforcement to start detailing then 30+ layout tabs suddenly disappeared without a trace.


Any ideas what happened or where they might be?


Hopefully I can recover them from last nights back up - otherwise I have lost hours and hours of work!

In Object Inspector, Printous tab, see if the layouts are inactive. ASD has a limit of 5 printouts at the same time.


You can change that limit, but this is a different discussion.

Do you mean the paperspace tabs along the bottom? If so, type SETPBUF and change the number of allowed model tabs...I had this problem to. Also in the ob inspector you can click on the triangles.

Hope that helps, Lynley
