Hi guys, I am working with arcGIS pro to create polygons within a specific layer. so I have two layers open at a time, one that I am editing (creating polygons on),and one that is supposed to guide the extent of my work (the outline). 

My issue is that the outline layer randomly disappear over time on the "map window" but it still appears on the table of contents. zooming in and out does not help, viewing map it full extent does not help, and refreshing my computer does not help. when I go to where the layer is saved and try to open it on arcMap or Arc Catalog preview it does not show, but it is still there on the geodatabase on the arc Catalog tree.

what could be happening? Please help.

Do both have the same coordinate system?

I have had something strange happening that sounds sort of similar. Also editing polygons in Pro. Sometimes the feature I just edited disappears when clicking outside or clearing the selection. The row is still in the attribute table but no matter how I zoom or pan or refresh the view it will not display. If I save my edits, remove the layer and add the layer back in the feature now displays. This has happened 5 or 6 times now but I cannot force it to happen. I am using Pro 2.7.2. I have also once had the feature remain on the screen, even when I remove the layer. It does not disappear, even after zooming\panning. I had to delete the map to get it to disappear. I imagine this sort of problem would be quite hard to track down, maybe a memory or cache corruption issue?. Anyone else experiencing strange things?

Since it is a couple of days away from Friday.  A cache clean, as suggested, is a good idea and a computer reboot (not just a shutdown of the application) may be in order.
