When I select a valve, pump, instrument, etc, in a P&ID drawing, and then click the blue little arrow in the lower right for previewing a replacement, this happen to appear wrong. I see the preview window, all white, like if all the items are in the back, description appears correctly, please see attache img.

Has anyone experince this before ?

Please delete the SubstitutionPalettes.xml file from the root of the project. This file with then be recreated when the project is opened and it usually fixes issues with the display of the substitution palette.
