Invisible geometry in Assembly


New member
When I try and draw a plane (or any sketch) in an assembly, in Catia V5, it dissapears. It is visible through swapping the visible space, however the hide/show function does not bring it back. How do I draw on this part without this happening?
I have tried editiing the part in a seperate window and the same thing occurs.

The most common cause is the Geometric Set is Hidden. Look at the tree and Show the Geometric Set that contains the Plane and Sketch
