Why do "Quick Profiles" disappear after I save my drawing?

Well, because it's a "quick profile" - it can't save that information
because it's just a quick representation, one that gets deleted even on
a regen. I don't know if it does a regen upon saving, but I do know
that it's saving a thumbnail, and can't save that quick profile.

If you want them to stay, guess you need to make them a regular profile
view. I can see how you'd want to keep seeing them as you work, and if
you're like me, have trained yourself to save every few commands...it
would be annoying, but I think it's operating as it's designed to.

OK, thanks Jason. Just wondering if there was a problem on my end. I
figured that's what it was. Oh well...

I'm wondering the same thing, yeah ---- 6 years later.

I can understand deleting the QP if the line/polyline used to define it's alignment is removed.

But why delete it on a SAVE?

A profile is simply a representation of an alignment (the line/polyline) and one or more surfaces.

All of these things survive a SAVE.
