When upgrading a project from previous versions, Graphics Builder may 'lose' objects while keeping the AN point in the correct place. 

Currently there is only one way that this is known to happen.

In Version 5.xx, the CTG file contains the MASTER information for all AN points and what type they are.

Previously, you could put down AN points and edit the DBF files, knowing that they would override the AN points and make them into whatever animation object you wanted. This no longer happens, and Graphics Builder only loads those records that it knows need to be loaded for an object based on what type of object it is (in the CTG file).

CIT has confirmed this to be a problem in Citect for Windows version 5.xx. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
