    Placing line based detail items in view

    I'm working on a graph to place daylight zones (line-based detail components) inside windows for energy analysis plans and I've go it working for the most part, but I'm seeing something strange with the nodes to actually place them. There is a clockwork node for placing line-based model components by level and one to place line-based detail components by view, and I only want these in 1 view. For some reason the detail item version doesn't seem to work and the model one does. I'm just concerned about issues with them not going in the right view or someone changing views while using it and getting strange results. Am I doing something wrong, or is this just how they work?

    Ok, I think I figured this one out. The curve I was using was taken from the origin point of the window, which was above the floor. Once I set the z dimension of the line to match the level of the view it seems to be working correctly.
