Full Version: MLCAD: ghost arrows spontaneously revert to non-ghosted

In my MLCAD multi-part files, I will have arrows ghosted in submodels. When I look at the model that the submodel is in, the arrows are invisible, as they should be.

However, sometimes after making changes to the submodel, or closing and reopening the file, the arrows have unghosted themselves. Sometimes re-ghosting them in the submodel is sufficient to fix this, but sometimes I have to edit the .mpd file in notepad to replace the instances of "0 MLCAD ARROW" with "0 GHOST 0 MLCAD ARROW".

Has anyone else experienced this behaviour?

(Also, as an aside, is there any situation where you wouldn't want an arrow to be ghosted?)
