I have used ArcGIS extensively, but am at a new job with only access to QGIS. I am trying to import a few shapefiles and am having some problems. First, I opened the shapefiles in esris free browser, and eveything opened without a problem.
I open the files in QGIS and they are loaded browser panel showing that they are polygon and polyline, respectively, but no features are displayed on the screen. Further, when I click zoom to features, I am taken to the right place, which indicates that something is there.

Unknown geometry Type 0. However, I looked in the metadata and it correctly displays its geometry type.
