Drawing won't save

If figured this out after reading some other posts and thought that this may also help some others.

I have a drawing with a lot of sheets showing manufacturing details.

I use the "replace part/model" a lot. I use this for different variations of a common assembly model.

(I could probably use configurations instead, but find this method more straight forward)

I also copy drawing sheets and replace the existing model with a new one to save time.


Anyways, my issue was that my drawing revisions were not being saved.

I "save" a lot during the day and no errors are reported.

It is not until I want to go home, that I find out that the drawing will not close.

Several times I ended up losing my modifications.


This morning I pulled up the 3 new drawing sheets I created and deleted the "section views"

Then I was able to finally close the drawing and save the changes.

Then I opened drawing again and recreated the sections, as I had them before.


Good luck.
