    Default drawing disappears

    last time I had an issue with a viewport not displaying text. this time the whole drawing is missing.
    i created a drawing from a template. it has inserted kmz files, shape files, an imported .imx surface and cogo points. worked
    on it for several hours yesterday. came in this morning and opened it up, the thumbnail showed just the way i left it yesterday.
    when the drawing opened, i could see where i left off. when it finished opening, what was visible in the viewport disappeared.
    go into model space and there is nothing there but the bing image background. go into toolspace, my cogo points area there, my
    surface is there, but nothing i do will make them visible. i recovered, audited, wblocked, saved as, nothing brings it back.
    it will open in Trueview, same thing, nothing is there in model space.

    I am at a loss.

    the file is too big to upload.

    Couple of things to try..

    If you do a SELECT ALL in model space, what's found?

    If you zoom to a cogo point from Toolspace panorama. what happens? coordinates correct?

    export surface and points to XML and imnport to new drawing -- anything show up?

    1. in model space SELECT ALL. 466 found, 6 were filtered out, 402 were not in current space (but everything should be in model space)

    2. in toolspace, select a cogo point and zoom to point, it zooms to a location that is the correct location but nothing is there.

    3. export as XML and import into new drawing, surface and cogo points are there and visible.

    welp. at least some of it's back. now you can re-import the kmz and shape files, and start back up with a clean drawing again..
