Re: "Houdini Disappearing Act" when using Break View

I have good news for you. We double checked and your issue is solved in the upcoming 2013Sp1.

Meanwhile there is a slightly less annoying workround than closing the Inventor session:


  • Open the drawing file
  • Open the assembly file (Update the assembly if you get an update dialog)
  • Switch to the drawing file and the break should behave OK.

We have the same problem in our company. Running PDSP 2013 and PDSS 2013 on roughly 40 workstations. We can reproduce the same error on 4 different Dell workstations and the 4 different graphiccards.

We have installed SP2 update 3


It an annoying issue for us. When will Autodesk solve the issue?
