Dimensioning second base view projection, not displaying sketch items

I have a drawing where I have added a second base view, rotated that base view and projected it.  I then enable a sketch in the drawing (for that projected base view) but the items in that sketch do not show up in the projected view.  This used to work, I have another drawing of a very similar model where dimensioning and items are correct.   I can open that other drawing and all is fine.  Not sure why the items are not showing up.

 

Can I share the model/drawing with someone at Autodesk to look at this?

Hi,

Please note that sketches are only displayed if the view in the drawing corresponds to the orientation (look at) in the design.

Hmm, the view in the drawing is the same as in the design.  The items are on a construction plane "above" the actual design.  I wonder if that has something to do with it.  However, as I said I have another drawing of this that I did over a year ago and had no problems with it at all.  

 

EDIT:  I tried using an Auxillary View instead of a Projected View and my items in the sketch show up.  They are hashed lines rather than solid but I am able to dimension to them.  So I apparently have a bandaid that works.  I am still baffled why they don't show up as they should...

Hi,

As long as there is no file to check, there is nothing more than a crystal ball.

When you say projected it do you mean a section view? If you used a section view the sketch can be on the wrong side of the section and get cut as well as the model.

 

Also you can change the linetype for the sketches in the document settings.

If you share your file, I'm sure someone in the community will take a look at it for you.

 

The hashed lines can be changed to solid lines... and any color. Edit your drawing's document settings.

Not Section View, I used Projected View.

I cannot share it publicly, it has proprietary content.  By the way, see attached screenshot.  Lines are continuous in the Document settings, but the objects in the sketch (circles and lines) are dashed in the Auxillary View.  And again, the projected view does not show these objects at all which seems broken.

Please don't attach pictures, just paste into your message.

You do not show the settings for sketches.

Ahh, thanks, I missed that there was a Sketches drop-down.  I see they were phantom and changing that does indeed fix the objects in the Auxillary View.
