Objects not visible after zoom extents

Issue:

In paper space, the xref and other drawn entities are shown. While in the model space, none of the objects are visible. Performing a zoom extents results in multiple small dots appearing. While trying to zoom to one of these dots, nothing is showing and you cannot see the xref or other drawn entities.

Causes:

Objects in the drawing were grouped and far away. 

Solution:

  1. Use the UNGROUP command and select all.
  2. Zoom to extents and delete the miscellaneous arcs through the drawing.
  3. Once all the miscellaneous arcs have been deleted perform another zoom extents.
    You should now see the xref and other entities as shown in paper space.
