Hi

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but if it is it is fairly minor.
I've been using the rail tool in ARCHICAD 21 is which is really good. However, every time I go into the "edit" mode, then go back out, the contours of my 3D view disappear, even when the 3D settings show they are on. I have to deselect contours, hit OK, then turn them back on, and they reappear.

Anyone else having this issue?

Do you mean that the "Show Contours" checkbox gets turned off somehow when you enter Railing Edit Mode?
Or is it something else. Could this be a graphics card driver problem?

Hi laszlonagy
It's not happening anymore! Must be one of those one off things....but what I was doing was:

1) I'm in 3D view. I can see the 3D contours as the "Show Contours" is on
2) I select my rail tool in 3D, and go to the 3D environment. The contours drop off, BUT the tickbox for the "Show Contours" is still checked
3) I exit the rail tool in 3D, back to my 3D view. Contours has still dropped off, "Show Contours" checkbox is still checked
