I see the lines but can't select them!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I have a strange thing that recently started on a file that I've been working for a while. All of a sudden I can't select line/poly lines to modify, howe3ver I can with others on the same layer. I've noticed the lines I have problems with are generally in the same direction. Some times I can highlight but can't tag to the snap markers. I did

command and did a select – all and changed the elevation to '0' and it actually worked for a while, but it reappeared again.

When I hit regen those lines disappear and reappear again when I open the file again or when I play with the attribute display. I'm just confused, ANY IDEAS.

Thanks

Maybe try running an audit and a purge on the dwg. If that doesn't work I'd give'r a restart to see if the problem remains.

araslan,

 

I've had this happen recently also. Although i can't figure out what caused it, i can remedy it in the drawing.

try this:

1. select "CTRL"+"A" to select all.

2. delete all of the entities

3. very important step, select "OOPS", do not leave this step out.

 

Now you should be able to select the entities that were previously un-selectable.

If anyone has a fix to this, please let me know.

 

thanks

It's worth a shot here, but I do not think it will actually work...

 

Is your 0 (zero) layer frozen or turned off?

Same goes for defpoints

The same thing is happening with me, it is really weird! any solutions found?

 

I open to edit a block in block editor, but then i can't select some of the lines. I tried auditing and purging the file but nothing worked. Finally i tried orbiting the block in block editor and for some reason i could select the lines again!

 

Any idea why this is happening?

Without having a copy of the block to play with it's impossible to say exactly what is happening and why.

i had the same problem with a few polylines ( i couldn't select them one by one with the mouse, but using quick select i managed to select them) . Audit,delete and then oops didn't work.

My polylines were on defpoints, and a few (other) layers were turened off.

 

I turned all the layers in my drawing on and then i could select them again. Don't know what the problem was, but it works now....

The problem was twofold. 1) Your polylines were on the defpoints layer (not a good practice) and 2) layer "0" was probably frozen.
