    They just don't want to work. I can create them but nothing else. I can't paint geometry, paint alpha, remove alpha etc.

    Help would be kindly appreciated.

    Works again (no idea why and how, but I'm happy with it).
    But now I've got a new problem. There's a leak in the middle of nowhere. How do I fix that?

    Displacements dont seal, put a nodraw brush literally in the displacement to seal it. If you want to understand how the compiler sees a leak or not, disable Displacements and func_details, and also brush entities in VisGroups.
    Only normal brushes seal

    Something's origin became uncentered. Go to Edit > Select all and then Tools > Center Origins. Should do the trick.

    We really need to make a mapping troubleshooting FAQs post and pin it.

    That's almost done the trick. One leak left.
    Well the problem is I can't load the pointfile anymore o_o The "goto coordinates" brings me to the very end of the grid. Middle of nowhere. Help?



    Also +1 to the troubleshooting FAQ.
