Have you tried to tag or place an object into a view and gotten this warning message;
None of the created elements are visible in Floor Plan: Level 1 View. You may want to check the active view, its Parameters, and Visibility settings, as well as any Plan Regions and their settings.
It's extremely frustrating to new and old users, because you have a million things you have to now go through to see why your item is not showing up in this view.
Typically yes, it is one of the suggested issues in the Warning message but there are some instances were the you have checked all of the settings and nothing is working.
Try the following to get your view to show the objects you want:
- Check the objects phase, it should show you in properties as you are trying to place it in the view. If your views phase or phase filter is set differently, you may not be seeing the item because of it.
- Check your worksets, make sure you are not bringing in the item on a workset that is turned off in the view. This can be found on the Collaborate tab >Worksets panel > Worksets.
- Check to see if you have a View Template applied to the view, this could have an override not allowing the item to be shown in this view. This can be found by going to your View tab > Graphics panel > View Templates drop down menu > View Template Settings.
- Check your other views and see if perhaps they are working correctly. You can the create a view template from it by going to the View tab > Graphics panel > View Templates drop down menu > Select on Create Template from Current View.
- Check to see if there are any filters placed in the view. This can be found on the View tab > Graphics panel > Filters.
- Try simply creating a new view. You can do this by going to the View tab > Create Panel > Plan Views drop down menu > Select which type of view you want to create. In the New Plan dialog box, un-check the Do not duplicate existing views so you can see all the views that you have currently. Select on the view that is not allowing you to add items, set your scale and click the OK button. 9 times out of 10 this is how I remedy issues in views. There is no answer that I can give as to why a view would start acting up but it may be an indication that the file needs to be cleaned up. If you are working from a Central file you will need to make sure it is being maintained properly following my fellow BSD blogger Sherry Pittman's blog on Central file Maintenance.
