Curve display issues in inserted file

Hello All

Wondering if someone here has run into this issue - hoping there is a quick fix… :crossed_fingers:

I am doing some drafting in Rhino 5 and wish to use multiple files to separate different drawing elements. I intend on inserting these files into ‘sheet files’ to create various drawings. When I link one of my files some of the 2d geometry doesn’t appear in the main (sheet) file however when I select the link/block I can see the missing geometry.

Unselected the link/block looks like this.
Please see bottom right of plan for an example of where the curves are not displayed

When selected the link/block looks like this.

I have checked this in Rhino 7 and there is no issue. Unfortunately I don’t have a Rhino 7 licence…
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Rhino 5.

Attached are the main and linked files.

MAIN FILE.3dm (57.7 KB)
LINKED FILE.3dm (234.4 KB)

I should add that the issue is persistent when printing to PDF.

Thanks for reading if you made it this far.

Hi Robert -

This appears to be an issue with blocks in Rhino 5.
You’ll see the same if you, in the “LINKED FILE.3dm” file, select everything and turn that into a block.

I suppose that that work-arounds are to either insert that file as individual objects or use the Attach feature.

Hello Wim

Thanks for the response. Will insert as groups and update as required.

Attach looks to be an useful approach too.

Thanks again
