Has anyone had this issue in SharePoint 2013 designer where you click on the Lists and Libraries under Site Objects and you receive "there are no items to show in this view"? It's almost like a permission issue, but this has worked before. Thanks

Dumb question, but have you tried to refresh the connection. In the upper ribbon, the very small ribbon, there is a refresh button.

Another thing I have to do sometimes, is close SPD and reconnect. It's not a bug, but a feature.

Hope the helps...

Yeah, I wish the fix were that simple. I'll have to do more troubleshooting.  Thanks SneekCo. I'm thinking maybe something is corrupt with my Designer. I might try a repair. Just a guess.

Thanks Saurav. I tried downloading this and it read I already have it installed. Things I have read on the internet indicate I have a bad list somewhere. Thanks for your help!
