Hello,

I'm using ViaCAD Pro 12.0.1 (Build 1563).

I've somehow (accidentally) toggled ViaCad Pro into a mode where objects always appear as transparent / line drawings. (see attached file)

Any thoughts on what I might have done that'd have caused this, and how to get ViaCAD Pro back into a mode where I see a solid object?

Thanks,

K.

I figured out that I'd somehow turned off shading. I didn't realize there was a short cut key to turn shading off!

Turning shading back on restored the solidity of the object, but now all the lines in the design are jagged (even when set to 'super fine').

Any thoughts on how to make the lines smooth again?

I have seen this as well. Seems like going back and doing a reset all settings to factory settings can fix this. Then you have to go back and turn on your specific settings. Messing with the shade options is an interesting experiment. Sure seems like messing with certain settings can really jumble the code of Viacad. And if you hit a wrong function like deep select at certain times. It just locks up. Getting very used to saving all the time.
