when i zoom extents, my dwg gets very small and hids in a corner...as if there is something else on the page way off in space. i've tried to find it but theres nothing visible. everything is thawed/on and there are no wipeout frames. i tried to Erase All...then deselect my drawing...but still nothing.
what can it be?

many thanks to Jeff_M for solving the problem. Turned out to be a frozen layer (in the viewport). I had items way off in space on that frozen layer....i never realized it because i checked all layer...but not layers in the viewport.
Start a new drawing and copy and paste the data you want into the new one.
You probable have a point somewhere. zoom to 0,0 and check in that area too.
Do you have any AutoCAD points in the drawing ?- DDPTYPE and set the style and size to check
checked the points...i'm good there. it has to be something else. thinking about trying
i could...but others will be working on my dwgs at some point. and i'm sure they will zoom ext....and i'm sure they won't have nice things to say if i dont fix the problem. (not that i care about what they say...they're some sloppy-****, useless drafters)
Do you happen to have a large radial dimension? Anytime I dimension a radius, it makes a little dot and if I erase the dot, the dimension erases.
no radial dims that i can find. i didnt start the dwgs...someone else did. but i'll double check to be sure.
i may do that, Jeff...let me try the dims
Another suggestion, you may also want to try _mapclean with the Zero Length Objects option and also the overkill command. Just select all then remove your entities you want to keep. I'm curious what it is, please let me know what it was when the issue gets resolved. I've had similar issues in the past but I'm usually able to find the culprit after a bit.
