  • Empty canvas in Design mode although components are listed in the Object browser window
  • No component is displayed in Design mode when using Copy and Paste grouped components


Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a model structured with several grouped components
  2. Copy/paste one grouped component a couple of times
  3. Save/close the model
  4. Re-open the model
  5. Canvas is empty BUT the preview does display all the components.

  • Xcelsius 2008 SP1


  • Limitation of Xcelsius:Copy \Pasting in multiples of 10 works up to a maximum of 230 components. Any further additions of components do not show them in design mode when the XLF is saved and re-opened.  


  • Drag and Drop components from the components list
