    Line Styles Not Matching Between Family & Project

    Hello, I'm using a dash 1/16" line style for a door swing in my family. When I bring it into the project it is no longer a dash 1/16" style line. Both family and project are in 1/4" = 1' scale.

    I've double checked the line pattern properties 1/16 Dash 1/16 Space

    If I draw a detail line in the project using the same style it looks correct. The Door Swing? Not so much. What gives?

    This must be an easy fix but dang if I can find it.

    Thanks

    The project is King. If the line style is already present in the project then it will persist. Loading a family that has the same line style will lose to the Project. You'll need to make the same changes to the line style in the project as were done in the family. In this case it sounds like your project's line pattern is different than the family's.

      Thanks Steve,

      That was my sense, and I thought I had addressed it. The line style is named "Hidden" in both family and project. Both are assigned a "Dash 1/16" line.

      The properties of the line pattern in both are set to 1/16" Dash and 1/16" Space...Or I least I think all is matched up. Sounds like I need to double check everything.

        Make sure that nothing has been overriden for door swings in that view template too. In the project object styles might match, but if the template has overridden "Hidden" in the door family to something else (in model categories or by a filter) it could explain the graphical difference you are seeing.

        Is the door phased, in a view with phase overrides?

          Are you sure that you are looking at the graphics settings under "Doors" and not "Lines?"
