I've an issue I've been discussing with my VAR, but I'd like to know if anyone else has had a similar issue.


I've a large assembly drawing that errors out when opening.  It'll appear to open, but gets an unhelpful error message while opening.  Then the program locks up hard and has to be killed via the task manager.


My VAR looked at it, and said there was a corrupted view on sheet 1, and gave me a procedure for working offline to remove it.  Recently the same drawing errored out again, and it seems there are multiple views corrupted.


However, I can open the drawing in Quick View. If I then load each sheet separately, everything is fine.  So I have my doubts about a corrupted view being the issue.  Could be wrong, but how could a view be corrupt and then load? 


This morning I opened another drawing and got a similar error message.  I'm getting concerned there's a serious issue that's just starting to rear its head.  BTW, other users found the same issue in the drawing I mentioned above, so it wasn't just me.


Anyone seen anything like this, where you had to Quick View load the sheet?
