Help, Cannot create any thing in a file...
show user profile  tom_curitiba

I have quite a problem.. I was working on a file yesterday and today I cannot create anything anymore in it.
Or better said, I dont see anything from the new created geometries or shapes.
I see that they get created on the parameters on the right side but on the screen nothing new, even if I press Z to center last created...

It happened after I was creating a shape over a geometry (I wanted to duplicate an edge), it looked like the shape tried to glue on the geometry and suddenly max crashed..

So I restarted it and I got this message:
The unit Scale of the files does not match the System Unit Scale.
1 unit = 0,001 meters,

I tried to adopt the file size, didnt work, I tried not to, didnt work, I tried different things in the unit set up and system unit set up..nothing works, I restarted many times..

I am clue less how to go further,

any suggestion, did it happen before to sb else?

1. Unhide all
2. Select an object from the list (press H) go to faces (4) and select unhide all (faces) from the right menu.
3. Create new scene and import->merge your old scene into it.

P.S. Scale wouldn't be the issue.

I think Herfst is right. You're probably working on a hidden layer.

ahhh! yes, of course! I was working on a hidden layer, this is the last thing I had done yesterday before to close: I had created a "garbage" layer to put some help lines and it became active layer..
thanks, I was really stuck there
