Node & Line Visibility

Can anyone direct me to post that may have solved my problem, or give me some guidence.

I'm currently using MDT 2009, and XP Pro. I've created my model and have added nodes and lines to the model. In paper space I've dimensioned to the nodes in my model, suddenly the nodes disappear in model space. The dimensions in paper space are still there but the nodes are not visible in model space. I have tech support with my subscription, but MDT 2009 is no longer supported. Stephen Bessette at Autodesk was kind enough to suggest a "Clean Purge", I did this procedure twice but the nodes and lines still do not appear in my model. Does anyone have any suggeestions?

just a guess, is there a pdmode variable in MDT?


In reg Acad, I've adjusted pdmode to equal 3 in order to see points/nodes at times.  Not sure if that's available in MDT or not.

On the command line "ddptype" brings up a dialogue box
