Artboards disappeared on my project.

Something happened to my InVision Studio document. I opened the document I was working on, and it shows nothing on the canvas area. I can see every Layer, every Page and every Component on every Library. I can even export my actual artboard, but I can't see them or manipulate them.

I think it happened because I updated the Material Design UI Kit, after the software asked for it. Also, clicking on update does absolutely nothing. When I try to open a document that already was updated, it prompts to update again, with the same items on it.

I've already tried to zoom to fit, zoom to selection, center selection, zoom in and out (it is behaving a little strange on this, jumping from 67% to 167%, then 469% and so on, until reaches a max of 25600%), restart the software, open in another computer (with macOS Mojave 10.14.6) and changing the theme to light (when I change, it keeps a whole part of the canvas on the other theme, I'll leave a screenshot).

I still can change the layers properties like X and Y positions(artboards, shapes and texts), width and height (only artboards and shapes) and change the order of the layers but not copy any layer or so. Also one of the artboards is showing X and Y positions as NaN (not a number) and it cannot be changed.

On a new project, everything works fine.

This is what it looks like:


What happens when i change between the themes:


Does anyone have been through this before? What can I do to recover my project?



System: Windows 10 Pro (Last update: KB4524570)

Studio version: 1.24.0

Hi Upasana,

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble accessing your project. I'm having a little bit of trouble understanding exactly what issues you're encountering. Can you please provide some additional details?:

  1. Are you having trouble accessing your project in Studio or in the InVision Cloud?
  2. You are having trouble with a Studio project, correct? If so, can you please let me know what version of Studio you're using?
  3. What do you mean by "deselect" yourself? If you're able to provide a screencast showing the process you're moving through, that would be great!
  4. Are you encountering any error messages? If so, can you please provide a screenshot?
  5. Can you please provide a screenshot of your "About this Mac" overview or other OS details?

Look forward to hearing from you,
