I've got a problem with AutoCAD 2013 that's driving me nuts! I have a semi large drawing file in model space, I've used the layout tabs in paper space for the drawing title block. I have about 16 tabs, one for each drawing, with a viewport for each area. Everything was going good, I'm about 90% complete, when I try to put in a north arrow (in paper space) on each of my drawings. I made a north arrow block (in paper space and using only one layer) and I start plugging my north arrow on in the corner of the viewport (that constitutes the area of the drawing I made), everything is going fine, in the first 4 drawing tabs, but then I try to insert my block the next 3 drawings and it disappears! It looked like it was trying to load my block, when you called the block up you could see it, but once you try to insert it at a point over the viewport it disappears! I tried a couple of times and the same thing happen. SO I moved on to drawings 8 and on, and it works fine again! I tried to erase the viewport on the effected drawings, and re-generate a new viewport (once I deleted the first view port I now could see all the north arrows I tried to plug in, but with a new view port the north arrows again disappear. I even inserted a north arrow block half in and half off the view port, every part of the block in the viewport area disappears, but not outside the viewport. I checked all the layers, nothing is turned off or not visible, but I am clueless at this point ...any ideas?
