Soft Body not working after first time

The first time I go to make a soft body in a project, it works fine. However, anytime I go to make a soft body after that (even by undoing the original soft body and then reselecting the soft body command), it makes my object vanish entirely. Not just the original (which it should) but also the copy with the particles. Nothing is visible either in Maya or when rendered.

Here's my selection settings:

Here's how it looks before choosing soft body

Here's how it looks after:

You can see the soft body is indeed created in outline, it's just not visible anywhere. However, it doesn't appear that a nucleus gets created after the first time:

Again, it works fine the very first time in a project, whether a new project or an existing one. But any time after that, even if undone, or the object is duplicated and history cleared, etc., it never appears.


I'm using Maya 2024.2 for Mac.
