Layer not showing in Viewport

216 Views, 3 Replies

I have a master drawing with multiple xrefed building sketches. Looking at the model space on the "master" I can see all the room identities. However, if I go to the sheets that I have created and look at the viewports. The room identies are not there. The layer is called A-Room-Iden and it is on and not frozen...


Any ideas?

are the room identities, annotative blocks?

If they are, select them, and in properties add the viewports scales.

Is the layer 'frozen in current viewport'?  Which is different from the main frozen/thaw setting.

They may be blocks. The blocks may be inserted on the layer A-Room-Iden, but the entities that make up the block may be on a layer that is frozen in that Viewport.
