    Revit links won't show up in Underlay?

    So is that true? I'm trying to show the roof level in half tone on the penthouse roof plan. My exterior shell and core is linked into the file. I've tried it on numerous views and the results are the same. I can adjust the view range and it all shows up fine, just not half tone. Really wanted to avoid having to half tone individual elements...

    If I go to Visibility/Graphics and Revit Links tab, I can select Halftone or Underlay to get my linked model to show up halftone. I'm not exactly sure I understand your question, though...are we talking about the same thing?

      I don't want to half tone the whole link in that view though as some items within the view need to be full tone.

      For example, in a project without links, if I turn on the underlay when in the "penthouse roof plan", I would see the full "roof plan"(or any plan selected), just in half tone. However, when my exterior core and shell is in a link and I turn on underlay, it's nowhere to be found within that underlay.

      My temporary solution is to just extend the view range and half tone the elements beyond. Not too difficult a task as it's just a roof plan, but I was hoping for a more integrated solution.

        In order for that view to be an option, that view must exist (as a floor plan view) within the project.

          It does exist. It doesn't matter which underlay view I select, the revit link does not show up within the underlay.

          Try it yourself, start two projects. On the first project, draw a box on level one with walls that go up to level two. Link it into the second project. Open up level two on the second project and turn on the underlay for level one. You will not see the linked box in the underlay.

            Okay... I see what you're saying now. It appears that only work for elements drawn within the host model.

            One option would be to set the linked view, in your model's Level 2 view, to the Level 1 view within the linked model. You can also control how much you want to see by customizing what's on/off.

              at first thought it's business as usual, underlay plus linework will work beautifully, now it's "gone", is it fixed or available in 2013?
