I'm doing a really basic outline of a park scene, and i'm trying to add a circular plane so I can begin to model my amphitheater. For some reason, when I hit 'Space' and add the circle, nothing shows up. Same for appending an object. I have also tried centering it with Shift+W.


Here is the link to the .blend file. I need as much help as possible; I have a project including this I need to turn in tomorrow. Thanks for any help or insight.

  • $\begingroup$ In your scene you have two layers 1 and 9. Newly created objects are going to 9. To make layer 1 the active layer press 1 $\endgroup$ – cegaton May 29 '15 at 2:04

  • $\begingroup$ By moving your object to a different layer (or deleting all the objects on the layer) $\endgroup$ – cegaton May 29 '15 at 2:17

The issue is that the active layer is not the one that is visible. So your objects are being created in layer 9 instead of layer 1.

To make layer one be the active layer press 1

To see the contents of both layers press 1 and Shift 9
