I have been working on a complicated model for a long time and today it suddenly quit displaying faces in edit mode. It appears to be in wireframe, and toggling wireframe does not change that (unattached parts in my project toggle appropriately). I looked at the object display settings and Textured is selected. I tried selecting four vertices and creating a new face, but no face appears. When I go to object mode, the faces appear normally.
This anomaly occurred out of the blue while I was working on the model. I have not been importing or changing versions or otherwise manipulating the file.
A picture of my model in edit. Note that the pants have faces; that is part of the larger model no longer showing faces.
