    Was about to write... is the Active Workset for the view "closed".

    If it is just the one view it is possible that it has become "corrupt". What happens if you make a brand new view of the level and match the settings?

    Nope, unchecked and no worksets are turned off.

    How the hell does that happen? Because I created a new view and everything looks good! WTH!

    It IS on a computer right? That's how!!!
    It could be Revit, it could also be impossibly numerous 'other' things corrupting the data.

    I have seen this issue. It only happens when I have my plumbing view with an overlay. Try changing the overlay for the view to "none". I would also try checking that the same look up tables are being referenced. Hope this helps...

    Like I said in the original post, Im having a brain fart. So it didn't even dawn on me to check the underlay. Ive been messing with this thing off and on all day. Sure enough, I look at the properties. Underlay is set to Level 1 (itself), switched it to NONE and boom. Everything looks good!

    Thanks for all the help and patience today! Im going to go and now.

    Thanks DMapes!

    I can reproduce the issue by changing the underlay to the same level as the fittings are associated with. Doesn't seem to mind other levels as an underlay. It affect duct fittings too if the view is set to coarse. Definitely quirky.

    As for a "corrupt" view, in this case the new view wasn't using an underlay so no issue. That made it look like the other one was corrupt when it really was what DMapes described. Creating a new view at least helps focus on view settings. As for more clues (not necessary now though), a screen shot of the the two views properties side by side would have helped track down differences.
