Problem with a layer inserted to the drawing

Hi,

I have a weird problem with my drawing.

It's a drawing of a newer version which I converted to 2007.

Conversion was successful.

I inserted my drawing as a BLOCK. Again, was successful.

Then tried to plot and couldn't see my drawing at the PREVIEW.

It just disappeared. I checked all the layers.

All of them were ON for plotting, none disabled.

What could be the explanation for this?

Could anyone help?

Thank a lot,

S_G_I

Hi,

 

run command _AUDIT or open this drawing with command _RECOVER, both will verify the consisteny of the database.

If that does not make anything better then try to save this drawing back to a DWG2000 or DXF14 format (I hope you don't loose any objects at this transformation, but that may disable some of the options you have from the newer inserted DWG-format).

 

HTH, - alfred -
