Hi guys, I have a DWG file from which data do not appear on GM. (GM16.2)
I can select all, see the data in search, view in 3d but not in the main window.
I have change style etc.. But with no result.

    Found the problem. They are all vertical lines one vertice Z=0 and one vertice with elevation.
    So GM cannot show vertical lines.

    I was able to see the vertical lines in the 3D viewer.  In the main view, did you try turning on the option to display line and area vertices (Shift+V will toggle it on and off).

    You should make sure you are using the latest version of Global Mapper 16.2.

    Hi Iaorana,

    I've verified the problem that you found, and have added a bug #16229 for the issue. When we have addressed the problem, we'll notify you here.

    Thanks, and best regards,

    I've updated the line drawing so that lines that end up in a single pixel in 2D are drawn as a single colored pixel in the view. This allows your data to show up nicely in the main map view without turning on vertex display. I have placed new builds with the latest changes at for you to try.
