    Single Line pipe (Course Detail) - Changing fill options

    Can the fill option be changed for single line piping (course detail) when rising/falling

    I wish to keep the same colour for the rise/fall of the pipe, in this instance green. There appears to be no option to change in family editor

    The standard for this fill is Black, even when overriding the element I cannot change to green.

    Have you checked object styles?

    The object styles have been checked and changed to a different colour (Cyan). The problem is if I change the colour all of my pipe rise/falls change with it.

    Ideally i'd like to have the same colour as each individual system, Is there any way I can individually change the object style for each of my systems as the image below?

    If all else fails i'll have to each rise/fall with 'outline-no fill'

    Thanks

    I thought you said the standard is black.

    How are you assigning colors to the systems?

    I can change the system colour in >Project Browser > Families > Piping Systems > 'Select Family' > Graphic Override

    Even when overriding the colour for a system, the standard rise/drop symbol for all pipes in single line is black. I can only change the rise/drop colour through your advice of visiting the object styles, but the object styles override settings change all rise/drops in the project and not individual systems.

    I've scoured the internet and I don't think it can be changed for each system, just a universal colour through the object styles

    It appears that you are correct.
