Classes with an X in the first column are currently hidden in the viewport. Click to change the icon to an open eye and they become visible. The Preview button lets you check the effect of what you’re doing.

Neat Viewport tricks

You can use the ability to control Class and Layer visibility to control the presentation of your drawing. For example if you want to show only certain signal types.

Vectorworks gives you a lot of flexibility and it’s well worth a browse through the help files when you have a moment.
