Hi, this bug is still in the rhino 6!


  1. have a block
  2. use “block edit” command
  3. click on the name of the block, in the block edit window, once or twice
  4. all geometry except the block IS ERASED INSTANTLY

Hi - I’m seeing a different issue here but nothing gets erased.
Could you please run the Rhino ‘SystemInfo’ command and post the result here?
Also, could you provide a bit more details for step # 3?

Note: what I’m seeing here is described in RH-53478

Hello Wim,
I am putting it here. I replaced the situation.
step 3: clicking and deselecting the “Bin button” (image)

System info:
Rhino info.txt (2.7 KB)
After step “3” boxes were erased

Finally, I was trying to save a copy of the file, and even the block was erased (or hided?)

RH-53478 should be fixed in the latest RhinoBETA. Please give it a try.
