Typically, when an object cannot be seen or does not display as expected in a view, the issue is an incorrect visibility setting. It is best to try to recreate the error in a new empty project. This process helps isolate the many crossover visibility issues that arise in phasing and family creation.
The following sections provide tips to help you identify and resolve commonly encountered view and visibility issues.
An Object Seems To Be Misdrawn
To update and refresh the current display, cut the object from the view, and then paste it aligned to the same place. This action forces a refresh on single-instance geometry drawing issues.
See Pasting Aligned Elements.
Elevation and Section Marks Do Not Display Correctly
Try the following actions to resolve elevation and section mark display issues.
Gridlines or Reference Planes Are Not Visible
Try the following actions to resolve gridline and reference plane display issues.
- Gridlines and reference planes must be perpendicular to the view in which they are displayed. Switch to an appropriate elevation or plan view to see them. See Using the Project Browser.
- Gridlines and reference planes must be below the cut plane of a view in which they are to display. Verify that the cut plane is not set at too low a depth in the view range. See Modifying the View Range.
