Walls disappear in any view

Hello to all,

I am a brand new users being dropped into a sink or swim learning project.  I attempted to start drawing a basement wall in the foundation layer, but when finished the wall disappears. 

 

I cannot seem to find anything online, via a google search, which is of any use.  Any thoughts as to how to what is happening and the cure?

 

Cheers,

 

Richard

If you could share a screenshot to your wall settings & the whole interface it'd be easier to diagnose the problem.

I see you are pkacing a wall to reside in 1. Main floor while you're in -1.Basement floor, so you've to adjust the wall base to basement and top to main one.

ie. You are drawing your wall on a Storey different to the one you are on. So either change the Home Storey of your wall to the storey you are viewing, or lower the walls Bottom Offset and set the Floor Plan Display to All Relevant Storeys.

probably you are drawing above the height of the CUT FLOOR PLAN... if you go to 3D window..., you ill find all the you draw and don't see on floor plan....
