I have found some strange behaviour with viewports set to Hidden Line-Hidden Line using GDI mode in Program Setup-Native Draw.
The attached v19 format file has just 2 objects, a box and a cylinder, each on its own layer, overlapping in space.
3 viewports show Both, Box and Cylinder, all set to HL, and using Layer Sets to control which objects are seen.
If I turn off visibility for an object in the Layers Palette or Design Director, in Model Space all is as expected.
What happens in the viewports depends on whether Override Layers Visibility is checked or not.
If checked, the object turns into a wireframe, if unchecked it disappears.
So I can use Layer Sets to control viewports, but to be sure when printing, all layers must be on in Model Space.
Another, possibly related issue is sometimes the Draw Intersections feature fails, I have to unset/set it in VP properties to fix it, also happens in Model Space which can affect Paper Space as well.
Is this normal for TCad 2016? I prefer the GDI mode as it gives a cleaner render than RedSDK, maybe I should play with settings for that?
This is the issue that confused me with my xref problem in another thread.
