Object Display Refresh?

So I setup some objects in Cura 3.1 and saved the gcode. Later, I drag & drop the gcode file into another session of Cura 3.1. The objects display as desired in the Layer view. But then I go to switch to 'Solid View' and the the buildplate is empty.

Is there any refresh command that would force Cura to display the objects properly or is this a side effect of loading a gcode file?

    This is by design. Gcode files only contain the layerdata. There is no straightforward way to go back from layer data to polygonal models that are suitable for slicing again.

    In other words: when loading a gcode file into Cura you can only preview the layers, but you cannot make any changes
