Objects loosing intelligence

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has come across this or not where object in a 3D drawing loose its intelligence. I'm pretty sure it was because i copied in an updated spec but the parts that were different between the versions of the specs weren't modified.
Is there a way to make it work again without reverting back to the previous spec (which i dont have anymore)?
I'm still updating the specs and the project is only a test but it would be good to know if there is a work around or not and also so i dont do it again.
I've attached a pic showing what it looks like when a part is selected and the properties window showing no info.

Cheers,
Scott

Hi Scott,

I do not believe this is related to the specs. It appears the entity lost
its link to the project database. The only way I know to fix this is to
erase it and re-draw it. Are you working in a multi-user environment with a
network project?

Thanks,
Jorge

Hi Jorge

To erase and redraw is the only solution I have found also. The problem is it happens to the entire drawing so redrawing is quite painful but i have found reverting to an earlier autosave does restore it.
It is a network Project but i should have been the only one modifing it. It has happened to other people here also so I'm not sure what is causing it.

Thanks,
Scott
