Graphic overrides in phases problem

Postby Gary Young » 28 Jun 2007, 01:17

I can't get graphic overrides for surface patterns to work in phases.
e.g. Hidden line elevation showing existing & new elements, view properties set to new construction - show complete, Show complete phase filter has exisitng elements overriden. Graphic override has existing material surface pattern as solid grey. THE OVERRIDE DOES NOT WORK.
However the shading override works if the view is set to shaded.

Is this a bug, am I missing something or expecting too much? :shock:
Also if using shaded view on a roof plan the default sun angle overrides any solid appearance of phased elements.

Yoy will need to set up some filters.

Have a project parameter in all catagories that you can enter in some value say "exist" then set the filter to look for this parameter and overide it.

Revit's display goes something like this..

Element override in view (2008 and up)
Phase Filters
Object Styles
Visibility Graphis Overrides per view
