Forgot to mention.

 

Purging the local data cache will not delete, remove or corrupt your projects and the cache will rebuild again as soon as a particular project is opened. You can also consider running this tool when you see low disk space on your C drive. This will purge the local cache, so that you can release disk space usually used by completed projects. After PLDC has been cleaned, opening the project and drawing may take longer than usual as the cache will have to be re-built. Usually it will be the first time project is being used after PLDC purge.

Hi, Vanket

 

I tried your both methods. Not working still. I had done Project Audit, Plant Audit, Project Compress ... whatever I know I can run with.

 

BTW, the method you said about create the iso is the same as what you shown from your images. Regardless, they should both shows the drawings in Project Manager, isn't it? But it doesn't. Again, I didn't ever have this problem before with my other project. That's why I want to find out what would have cause these.

 

I think I will try to take out the BAD type that GandalfMarocke suggested. But I have around 60 pipeline on this project. I might just ignore them for now. I will try this later. I will give the udpate later on.

 

Cheers,

Peggy

Thanks for your help, Gandalf

 

I won't have time to change all the number now, I will try it later on. I might just live with it for now. :smileyvery-happy:

 

Cheers,

We are also having this same issue. We were able to create ISO drawings without any trouble yesterday, but once the project was closed for lunch and reopened the drawings are no longer shown in the project manager. They are however in the correct windows directory. We have also tried various audits and restores without any luck.

 

Was there a solution to this that was discovered?

An update to what we did to fix this problem.

 

We restored every non dwg file except the project symbol style.dwg file. This effectively reset the project without losing any of the drawings that have been worked on. Fortunatly our IT department creates backups every 3 hours. I understand this may not be feasible for all situations, but it allowed our project manager to regnonize a created ISO drawing. We figured that a xml file corrupted.
