ORD Create P-P sheets - Plan Portion is blank

Creating plan/profile sheets in OpenRoads designer.  Named Boundaries process goes OK, although this is a massively frustrating tool in the way that it restricts inputs to the dialog.

Then comes to generate drawings.  All the drawing models get created fine. All the sheet models get created fine. Everything is in the right place.

But...

  • The plan view drawing models are blank.  The reference file is attached but invisible. By trial and error I found a way to make it visible by detach the reference then immediately undo.
  • The plan portion of the sheets is similarly invisible, although no matter what I try I cannot find a trick to make it visible.

Has anyone run into his before?

By way of commentary: I must say that Bentley dropped the ball on sheeting.  What's my evidence? When many people discuss just manually referencing and clipping as a viable alternative, then you have missed the mark on the tool which is supposed to automate such things.

    I have created plan sheets, profile sheets, double plan sheets, double profile sheets, plan and profile sheets, and cross section sheets for our firm. While I agree that the interfacing is a bit cumbersome, never have I had the issue of a "blank" drawing model. If I had run into this situation during development I would have noted it and how it was fixed. Sadly, I have no notes on the issue which you have mentioned, and I am quite unsure as to what might be the matter. All attached references in my world here show up just fine, and the sheet creation process lives up to (most) expectations. 

    If I think of any reasons for your issues, I will certainly come back here and try to help.

    What version of ORD are you using?
