Document Tree Art Icon Q?

Post by Dizzwold » Wed Oct 21, 2020 11:31 am

Hi All,

I've done something to my design, and I'm not quite sure what?

I had my design mostly complete, but when I reopened it the listing in the document tree had changed / most of the items where missing.

I don't know what I did, weather I'd accidentally clicked something, or wrongly saved it in a different format, I'm not sure.

It's not a big issue as I managed to salvage the design from Time Machine, but I would like to know (for reference), what I'd done, and maybe if it is reversible?

Here's the current design with the items missing in the document tree, and also the salvaged Time Machine original, along with a couple of screen shots.

I'd be grateful for your advice.

Dizzwold.

*NB, I've just thought. Yeah, steam and smoke coming out of my ears. LOL.
I did have some missing coincidences where I used the Validate and Fix Sketch. Is this what happens when this is done, as the coincidences are complete and now as one?
Here's the link to what I did regarding the Coincidences,as advised by sgrogan;

The only explanation that comes to mind is that you have accidentally imported a DXF and then overwritten the original file. But this is perhaps an unlikely sequence of events...

I wouldn't be surprised.

So all is lost then, I can't even get the positions for all the holes.

Ha-ho. We live and learn.

With the Draft_Draft2Sketch tool you create a sketch from the PartFeature object named Sketch. But all constraints are lost.
