    Extra line showing up on Window family...help??

    Hi all,

    I've been asked to get rid of this line that shows up in this family and I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of it. It looks like it's the opening cut but I can't tell.

    Any other window family, when fully mounted to the floor will not show any extra lines so I'm not sure why this one is showing that one extra line.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    You will find that it is the extrusion you have over the top of the window head select it and change its visability not to show when cut in section /plan and it will go away.

    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

      not sure, I use Voids only and no openings. But it shouldn't show like that as far as I know.

      Tested it, the color is due to the Object Style settings in the project/family. Change that and the line will turn black. Why the line is showing in the first place, I don't really know.

          I am with Martijn I only use voids and not openings, not that this was your issue.

            I'm curious, whats the reasoning for using voids instead of openings? Have you experienced problems with openings?

              Openings have issues when controling categories in elevations.
              Voids don't.

                Openings are also limited to cut straight thru the wall - Voids are the only option to created angled openings, or openings with a recess for sills, etc.

                  The one place I have continued using Openings is interior doors and relites. These items never need the complex cuts that voids support. Part of me thinks for consistency and future flexibility it would make sense to convert them, but I just have not had the need so it hasn't been done.

                  Feio, what problems have you had with elevations? I have not run into any trouble with openings thus far, but then our interior elevations are pretty simplistic affairs.

                    Openings cannot be used with Voids (so if you would want to nest in a window sill which needs a partial cutout it's not going to happen)
                    Openings can only be straight, so there cannot be a diverging opening (as seen in extreme in old castles but also popular in houses in holland),
                    There cannot be 2 openings in 1 family with different sizes. In Holland the opening for the structural part of the Wall is often smaller then the opening for the outer brick layer.
                    In general: openings suck in being flexible...
