Magnetic Point has vanished

I have just bought a copy of version 10, (that's all I can afford), and my magnetic point has vanished, both on the model and paper spaces.  I have the magnetic point icon and the snap to grid icon turned on, and the no snap icon turned off.  can anyone help me here?

The most likely cause is that Layer 0 is turned off.  In general, never turn Layer 0 off - unless you know exactly what you are doing and what the implications are.  TC uses Layer 0 for a number of purposes and strange things can happen if it is off.

That was a good version :-)

Keep Layer 0 visible.

Could be the SNAP button/indicator, the one in the bottom right next to GEO and the current coordinates is greyed out.  To un-grey and turn it on, just left click SNAP.  I had this problem just a few minutes ago.

Thanks Guys, I had turned layer 0 off, (I couldn't see the point of it!).  It's back now.  This is a good package, or it will be for me as soon as I can get the hang of it.  Thanks again for all the help.
