I lost a cut.

Watch the images, the first image the error that receipt when opening the document, the second error that receipt when opening the cut. Finally I return to open to the cut and me the sample in target. How I recover my drawing? The backup gives he himself error.

Thanks,
Gabriel

Open the section in question manually - right click on it, Open. Rebuild and regenerate it. Save the file. Then redefine the view/s.

Djordje, thanks, but I do what you advise I lose everything what I drew in the cut (lines, texts) and that is what it interests to me to have. How I can recover the cut without rebuild?
thanks

Probably your Section data portion of the file was damaged in some way. It is lucky because you can still open the file. The added annotation content is lost, unless you can open a backup previous version of the Section/Elevation, and copy-pasted those added stuf from it.
This happened to me a lot in AC 6.5.
We took a backup copy of the file, switched of all layers, generated the Section (no content resulted of course, since all layers were off), turned on all layers (this waywe now had all 2D elements in the Section/Elevation with no 3D elements), and then select them, copy them to the Clipboard, go to the other file and paste them to the Section/Elevation.

I sympathize.

However, now is the time to consider:

What amount of the lines and the text that you have lost did not HAVE TO be input by hand? Was there a modeling/annotating technique that could have generated the content from the model?

My point is: what look easier now is not necessarily better three months down the line.

Condolences; you will have to rework the thing ...

OK, I will have to rework, there is nothing of the model, it is a schematic cut of heating installation.

Now I ask:
  • · Is an error of AC 10?
    · How I did so that my cut of error?
    · That is what I do not have to return to do?
I do not want to return to mistake to me, although it is the first time that happens to me.

Thanks.

I know you say the back-up is currupt also, but just to share how I copy 2D information for a Section.

Set the Sections Vertical Range ti Limited and 0' to 1'. Open Section. Only 3D information within 0' and 1' will display. Copy and paste as stated by Lasz.
