DraftSight - editing sheets within the boundaries

DraftSight - editing sheets within the boundaries

DraftSight - editing sheets within the boundaries

My boss has created a model drawing with many sheets. It was going fine with multiple edits in the many sheets inside the boundary on all sheets.

However, yesterday, I cannot edit inside the darkened boundary of any of the sheets. When I double click inside the boundary to make the boundary darkened to make the edits appear on all sheets and the model, I am not able to edit or add anything.

If I don't double click and darken the boundary, then whatever I draw inside the boundary on that sheet is not available on the other sheets nor the model.

I don't know what is wrong, I've checked the Layer Manager and everything is turned on, there is a color for the layer, the line is solid and the line size is the default setting.
There is nothing hidden nor frozen. I'm at a loss as to what happened.

Does anyone know how to edit? All of a sudden, we can't edit.
Thank you!
Patty Shenk
