Points will not display in drawing

I have a drawing where points that I create will not display.

 

  • I have created points in this drawing before.
  • Previously created points display fine.
  • Points created in another drawing and imported into this drawing display fine.
  • All layers have been turned on and thawed, to make sure it's not a layer issue.
  • "All points" point group is the top point group.
  • When I create a point manually everything seems to work fine, info is echoed to the command line, etc., but then nothing happens.

Obviously it's a setting somewhere, but it is driving me up the wall trying to figure out what setting.  I'm sure I will slap my forehead when told what it is.  Thanks.

Check the point #, could be trying to overwrite, it's a bug

I think I am experiencing the same issue. How do I correct this?

When you go the the create points dialoge verify that the number I have circled in the image is greater than any point number in the current drawing.Points.png
