Display Issues

Display Issues
It seems to never fail that in every project there is something that is not showing properly.  I have created a checklist for users to follow.  It simply lists every spot you should check in order to get your object to show.  Some are more obvious than others, but should at least get you in the right spot.  I’m sure there are other hiding spots and if you know of any please let me know.  There is also a pdf file for download in my Content area on the left.
