In-Roads: Vertical alignment "disappearing" when inserting a PI

In-Roads: Vertical alignment "disappearing" when inserting a PI

In-Roads: Vertical alignment "disappearing" when inserting a PI

I've been on projects where when you insert a PI in the vertical alignment, you see the line bend and move with your cursor, including the slope changing on the display as you do.

And then the last 2 projects I've worked on, the moment you select your vertical alignment after clicking Insert PI (or any other function) the entire graphic disappears. I'm forced to autosnap to a drawn line and accept the change without ever seeing the vertical alignment. THEN I have to go to View Geometry > Vertical Annotation and click apply for it to be displayed again.

Since it's worked before, but not recently, I'm assuming there's a setting, maybe, somewhere that needs to be selected ... maybe?

Does anyone have any experience with this?
