      First of all I'm a total noob to uDig and maybe this is not a bug of the system but due to my cluelessness...

      I bought some field border information from http://geoportal.bayern.de - http://geoportal.bayern.de which came in the shapefile format (see attachment) and I was trying to open those in uDig. The shapefiles indeed open up fine either via Layer->Add->Files->... or using DnD and the new layers are added to the Layers table. The map area stays empty though. I was already trying to set a map/layer projection (DHDN 3deg Gauss-Krueger zone 4) and was also playing with different styles for the layers. However the map area remained empty.

      Upon selection of a certain layer though, the features table lists the features of that selected layer correctly. If I then select one or more of those features from the features table they get shown (yellow with slightly darker outline) in the map area unless I deselect them. Same applies for using e.g. the box selection tool i.e. if I manage to blindly catch one or more features (from the blank screen) they light up.

      Interestingly the sample data that is available on the uDig website works just fine so the problem seems to be somehow related to my shapefiles.

      Is this kind of problem already known and what can I do to circumvent it?

      Attached is part of the shapefiles that I couldn't get to be displayed.
