The most common cause of this problem is one or more stray objects a long way from the others. The Zoom All then causes a very large zoom out. While it appears that the drawing is blank, the drawing's objects are so small that they can't be seen. There are two choices when fixing this problem, a basic solution and an advanced solution. Both will eliminate the stray objects, but the advanced solution provides a way to potentially recover the strays.
Both solutions start with selecting the stray objects:
At this stage, the drawing will be repaired, but the stray objects have been deleted. You can use a text editor (e.g. Notepad) or the VCADD configuration editor to open and inspect the XML file. Bad objects will typically have very large values for the <Point> x or y values. Often, the value will contain an "e". Those values can be corrected to something more in line with your drawing. To help determine an acceptable range of values, you can set your drawing's units to inches and use Drawing Properties (WIP) to see the drawings extents. After you have saved the modified XML, it may be imported back into the drawing with the Import XML command (XIX).
