Continuing the discussion from I've lost my model within the file:
In the above linked article, this appears (emphasis mine, not in original):
I think I’ve found a way to reproduce it consistently!
- Start with a blank model
- Draw a rectangle
- Draw a line on a diagonal, dividing the rectangle into two faces
- Attach text to each face. Be sure you’re attaching to the face, not one of the edges.
- Delete the line you created in step 3
Now examine your model. One of the two texts you attached is visible. Now zoom extents. Voila - problem appears, reproducibly (at least for me).
I suspect that the other text, the one no longer visible, still exists in the model at an either undefined or ridiculous location. I’m sure someone with Ruby experience can post a bit of code we can all paste into our Ruby Consoles to confirm its invalid location.
Edit: I hereby retract one claim I made above: that I discovered this method of reproducing the error! There was a thread which revealed the behavior - reproducibly, but I can’t recall the thread. What I think I’ve done is reduce the example to its simplest form.
