Items Not Showing up In Paper Space

I have created items in Model Space that will not show up in Paper Space. The items are specific to layers. I checked the Layer Manager to see if the items were frozen in the viewport, and they are not. Any suggestions?

Try exploding them in model space and see if they show. Purge?

I take it then that you have checked in properties to see that the viewport is neither turned off nor locked and have double clicked in the viewport and performed a ZOOM Extents.

Is there a viewport in the layout or just the paper background with dotted lines for print margin?

Does a Titleblock display when inserted in the Layout?

When you checked the layer properties manager, were you sure you were in the
viewport and not paper space? Also check to be sure you were in the correct
viewport. I have seen multiple viewports on top of each other, so you think
there is only one and the properties shown for another.

What kind of items? Are they annotative objects by any chance?
