Blocks in layouts are invisible


#1

Good morning,

In the attached file, the title block (inserted as a block instance) in layout ‘1’ is invisible. If exploded as in layout ‘2’, it becomes visible.

Same here.
I have to explode the blocks in my title blocks before I print in V6. Otherwise they disappear.

Thanks for the reports. There are a couple of bug reports about this on file.


#4

Just FYI. R5 blocks are still invisible in layout and model space (except text and hatches).

RH-36315 is fixed in the latest WIP

today I wanted to make a layout and insert frame and datafield as blocks - invisible. exactly like described above. i have the latest wip (2017 MAY 23)

also the print preview makes rhino crash most of the time and it also shows stuff that shouldn’t be there.

Block display in layouts is broken in the current WIP. I have already fixed this in our internal builds and you should see the fix in the next WIP that is released (hopefully today).

I see that the test looks incorrect in the detail viewport in this model. Is this the bug that you are referring to?


#16

Hi,

yes in the detail view and in the normal viewport the objects that are assigned to turned off layers are still visible.

Hi Markus,
'yes in the detail view and in the normal viewport the objects that are assigned to turned off layers are still visible."
I am unable to duplicate this.
I am using an internal build of Rhino 6 wip 2017-6-5, so you many want to test this in the next public build to be sure.

In detail viewport, if I turn off the layers in the details, they are no longer visible.
In model and detail viewports, if I turn off the layers global, objects are no longer visible.

It would really help us to get a model and procedure to duplicate this issue.
Thanks for testing.
Sincerely,
Mary Ann Fugier
