Where is the shapes gone?

After restarting VP, most of shapes disappeared:

Hi Robert,

Thank you for your post. There are two possible causes:

Case 1: Use of Shape Legend
Shape Legends allow you to create diagrams by focusing on a subset of the shape types of interest. When the Shape Legend is on, the diagram toolbar will be filtered, like this.

Case 2: Use of ArchiMate Viewpoint
The diagram is applying an ArchiMate Viewpoint that has been configured to list only a subset of shape types. The idea is illustrated in the images below:

To check / edit the Viewpoint of a diagram, right-click on the diagram and select Open Specification from the popup menu. In the Open Specification window, open the Viewpoint tab.

To edit a viewpoint, select Modeling > Manage Viewpoint from the main menu or click the button next to the viewpoint selection in the specification window.

Hope this helps. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,
Jick Yeung
