Can't See Objects on Pasteboard Mac ID2020

My pasteboard isn't showing text in frames. The frame itself is visible but not the text. Objects also aren't visible unless actually selected. I have the same Preference settings that I've always had.

Hi Bob, I'm hoping you can help me solve the same problem: nothing on my pasteboard is visible. In my case, I'm in the Normal screenmode. (I dont knonw if I should have started a new post. Sorry if I should have. I hope you see this.) Thanks.

Are you sure you're not in preview mode? Because it sure sounds like you are.

Wow, that was quick. Thanks Bob! I figured it out. I was not in preview mode but I had zoomed out so much that I was viewing my grouped objects in the far nethers of outer space beyond the pasteboard. When I dragged the grouped objects closer to the document, they showed up on the pasteboard. Thanks again for trying to help!

Hi guys, 

 

I'm having a similar issue where can't see things that I place onto my pasteboard. I can see the bounding box while hovering over it but not the actual subject.

I use the pasteboard a lot to hold elements that I will later use as a part of my design. I have tried checking if I'm in preview mode, and disabeling the overprint preview mode, as well as matching my pasteboard to the colour theme. I have aslo tried changing my pasteboard margins to 0 but nothing has worked so far.

I would really appreciate any guidance on how to resolve this.

 

Thank you

so what your pasteboard margins are now? because if they're zero then you indeed won't see anything on the pasteboard.
