Visibility error message

I'm trying to place a sphere on a box but no green sketch lines appear when I attempt to place the sphere. I attempted to project geometry and this message appears, "

Warning: The object that you are creating is not visible. Please toggle visibility in the browser." additionally, just placing the sphere without attempting to center it on sketch lines , produces the same error. The box that I am drawing on is visible and I am unsure how to resolve this issue. I attempted the same operation in a new drawing and it worked fine.

I am guessing that you have turned off all sketches by turning the sketch folder in the browser off?

I have the same problem and my sketch folder is on (the light is on). What am'I doing wrong?

Best regards.

Can you supply a screen shot?  Make sure the sketch folder is expanded.

 

Thanks,

When I try to create a revol with the sketch shown I get the message The object you are creating is not visible. Please toggle visibility in the browser. As you see on the screen shot the sketch folder is all lighted.

Best regards.

Can you export the file and attach to this thread?  Does this happen with all sketches?

When you do the revolve can you click OK? Then see if the body folder is turned off in the browser?  Somehow I think you may have turned the body folder off while working and now there are no bodies (did you delete some earlier?) so as you try to make the revolve it thinks that the body is invisible.

Yes I've deleted a body and the body folder lost its visibility. After the revol I've toggled the visibility back and the result is OK.

Many thanks.
