Object 2D Symbols

TracyGA

I am trying to create some objects from some 3d files that I downloaded.  Typically when I do this I can open the object created and then change the 2D Symbol to what I want to see in plan.  This has always worked perfectly, but now when I try to do it, the object does not update.  Instead, it always shows me the 2D View (I'm not sure what the difference of these is supposed to be), which I cannot modify at all.  Is there a way to fix this?

If you are putting the linework of your desired 2D symbol in the 2D Symbol tab of the object script, the 2D Script tab should be blank (or fully commented ( ! ) out).

Check the 2D Script? The 2D Symbol will get overridden by anything in the 2D Script, so check there and delete if required.

I am not really familiar with the process of scripting.  Do you have a suggestion of what it should say?
