dfm Vs ~dfm Forms not visible

I have two forms. the associated files are
Form1 : unit1.dfm
Form3 : unit3.dfm and unit3.~dfm

I go into View -> Forms and see a listbox
with the two names Form1 and Form3.

If I click on Form3 , the form3 appears
If I click on Form1 , nothing appears.

The only difference I see in the directory is
the fact that unit3.~dfm is present and the file
unit1.~dfm is absent. What do I do to make this
necessary file? Is this problem caused by
Options->Directories  choices?

I belive that *.~* files are Delphi backup files and as such they shouldn't influence your project at all.
Try renaming Form3.~dfm and see if I'm not right.
I don't know why you can't view Form1 though :(

Backup file (*.~*) is created on Save event. It's possible you didn't save unit1 after killing (*.~*)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you want, you can send me (email: lottol (amp) visit (dot) ru) archive of your project folder. I'll try to solve it.
Especially interesting what you have in your .dpr file.

Have you already removed Form1, Save+Close Project, Reopen it and then add it Form1 again ?

I think I once had the same problem and this solved mine.
