Default Deleting functional swimlane, shape disapears

Hi All,



New to this forum, but always know that there is a wealth of information and help. Thanks in advance.

I inherited a work flow that's using functional swimlanes. I'm not sure how they did it, but half of the swim lanes were not added by using the 'insert swimlane before/after' function. So, I created new swimlanes, to syncronize the resizing of the swimlanes. And, now I want to delete the old swimlanes. But when I do, the shapes that I moved up and into the new swimlanes disapear.

I'm not sure how they are being linked. I want to unrelate them to the old swimlanes and relate them to the new ones. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in Advance,
CoffeeStuff

Without seeing your file, it would appear the shapes that you moved up got grouped, or otherwise attached, with the old swimlane. When you review the file, make sure ALL of the LAYERS are turned ON.

Thanks for your reply, I'll check on that the next time I touch that workflow.
