    Duct Hidden Line Style Not Working In Parent View

    Hi Guys,

    My duct parent view won't display hidden line style. But the dependent views covering a smaller area do. Any suggestions?

    Are there too many elements on the screen? This is weird. Hope someone can help.

    ETA: Ditto for my piping views. Parent views won't display hidden lines, pipe centerlines but the dependent views are a-ok.

    Are you using different scales? The parent view scale my be too small to show the line pattern.

    The parent and dependent have to be the same scale. I checked both 1:50 and 1:100. Same problem dependents are good but the parent is not. Using revit 2018.

    Okay, that was my first guess. I'm not going to keep guessing. Please post all view settings including the properties for the view and the V/G view template if you are using one. Alternatively, you could them yourself for any differences.

    Sure, as soon as I get a chance. One thing I should mention is my underground parent view is perfect shows all hidden line types everything but when I copy that view template, adjust filters to show other systems like duct and flat piping, apply it to another floor, hidden line types don't show up. Bizarre will get back to you

    Sounds like view range needs are different for these levels.
