    Trench Symbol Issue

    I'm using a detail line in my trench family to represent it in plan. It is a rectangle that is 6 11/16" wide by 6' 9 1/4" long. However when I load it to the project it is consistently 6 1/16" wide. This measurement doesn't change if I change the families width to be 10 11/16" or 4". It always stays 6 1/16" wide. I thought maybe it wasn't actually showing up in the project and I was seeing something else, but if I delete the detail line and load it into the project the line disappears. I thought that maybe there is another line covering one side that is slightly off but I can't find anything in the family that would do that. Any suggestions?

    Is your detail line constrained to the width?

    I have a parameter for the width that is set at 6 11/16"

    But is your detail line constrained/connected to the width in your family?

    Yes it is constrained to reference lines that have the parameter for width. When I change the parameter the detail line changes to match it.
