Thanks for your help guys, but the plot thickens.
Thank you for the tip I deselected Workplane By Face mode in Drawing Aids and the red triangles disappeared.
However, I seem to have another problem, perhaps I ought to start another thread.
When I create a group I always as a matter of good practise put all the components of the group on Level_0 then group them and then move them to the appropriate layer.
However, I am getting a weird resultwith TCW18.2. I create a group and move it to a layer say layer_1 the situation then is:-
both layers 'on' = group visible.
Switch EITHER layer off = group invisible.
The problem is actually worse than this as in my current work I made some groups light grey and whilst they appear the correct colour on the appropriate layer the incorrect appearance of the group on layer_0 is always black. Also the incorrect appearance of the group on the wrong layer is non-selectable.
Unfortunately the file that exhibits this behaviour is on a drawing that has an NDA so I cannot post it here. I have posted a sample that doesn't exhibit all the issues, but does have the odd effect between two layers.
I think it is something to do with the copy-in-place tool.
I can correct the effect by selecting the correct layer, exploding the group, moving it to layer_0. Going to layer_0 and the 'ghost' image then becomes selectable so I can delete it and then I can move the exploded group back to the correct layer - Phew!
So I think there is a bit of a conflict between groups, layers and the copy-in-place tool. Unfortunately I don't seem able to use the BCi copy iin place tool in ver 18.2.
Things are just getting worse and worse! I now have copies of groups that I cannot select or delete, I have tried making all layers visible and making each layer the working layer in urn but I cannot select some of the groups. This is making working with TCW18 almost impossible (if Iuse groups and try to move duplicates to different layers following a 'copy in place')
