AC15 won't display layout titleblocks

Paul King

I am finding that since upgrading to a newer graphic card (an NVidia GTX580) ArchiCAD no longer displays title block info of any sort in layouts (whatever layers are switched on), though will display contents of master layout used when that is opened directly . The upgrading of GPU and the onset of missing title blocks may or may not be a coincidence, though this upgrade is the only thing I can think of that might have changed recently

If I print a layout, the title block info is included normally.

I have tried three recent graphics drivers, and have disabled 2D graphic acceleration completely using the slider in advanced redraw options - with no improvement.

Most recent driver tested is version 285.79 (for Windows 7, 64bit)

Is there something else I could try?

Is there a registry or other setting that controls display of title information?

It seems odd that only title blocks would stop appearing if it really is a system wide graphic card / driver issue introduced by the upgrade, however I no longer have access to another card to test with.

Are any other users having this symptom?

Paul:

Have you checked the On Screen Display Option > Master Items on Layout?

Hi thanks David - yes, master items are set to show red. My layout background colour is white, and so I am assuming this is not the problem?

Paul:

Somewhere in your menus there should be an On Screen Display Option named Master Items on Layout. If it is checked the Master items show on the Layout, if it is not checked then the Master items do not show. It is possible that this command needs to be added to your menus via the Work Environment. In the Help files see: Documentation > The Layout Book > Layout Book Components > Master Layouts, bottom of page.
