I was working just fine and suddenly when I changed from object to edit mode, neither vertices, edges nor faces were highlighted as usual. I can still select them but can't see them, the object is displayed as in object mode. It happens with all my objects in the scene. Does anybody know why this could happen? I'm using 2.8

enter image description here

This is my viewport. I have one edge selected

  • $\begingroup$ I posted it in an answer to the original post, I didn't know if I could answer just to you, I'm kinda new... $\endgroup$ – Inés Gallego Martín Apr 4 at 10:30
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry I wasn't clear. You should include the image as part of your question. To edit your question, click the "edit" button at the bottom left of your question. (only answers should be posted as answers.) Thanks! $\endgroup$ – R.M Apr 4 at 10:42
  • $\begingroup$ I didn't know I could do that, sorry! $\endgroup$ – Inés Gallego Martín Apr 4 at 10:45
  • $\begingroup$ It's alright, thank you! The problem could be a modifier (solidify, perhaps?). Do you have any modifiers set up? $\endgroup$ – R.M Apr 4 at 10:52

The problem is that OVERLAYS is turned off, this feature is added in Blender 2.8, press the icon that looks like two intersecting circles next to Overlays.

In your image, it appears at the bottom of the 3D Viewport, by default it's at the top.

you have to click on the small button at the right bottom corner this small button at the left side of „overlays“ and on this button there are two spheres

Your problem was that you unchecked overlays so you can‘t see the wireframe of the object
