I have linked geometry into a file as a block that shows up in all views except Rendered.
I can select it even though it is not visible and I can view it but the view is shifted to underneath the ground plan and rotated 180 degrees and is not select-able. When I Rhino Render, the geometry shows up correctly.
Here is the funny thing. I think this is caused by the addition of a ground plane. When I removed the ground plan everything starts to work correctly with the linked block.
I do not think I have any display options off or any ground plan options that should be set differently that would cause this behavior but please let me know. As you know, to try this out you need to re-link in the T55010 file.
I have included a few pictures. The bolt on the left is one I imported so I could have geometry available in the file and not just a reference.
