    Phase filter "New+Demo" and control of fill patterns

    Working in RevitLT 2016.
    I have set specific patterns for the coarse detail level of my "Main Construction" phase walls, floors and roofs (eg: concrete on slabs, diagonal cross hatch for exterior walls, diagonal hatch for interior walls, earth for topography.)

    In Section view or Plan view, set to "Main Construction" phase, with detail level set to "Coarse", setting the phase filter to "Show Complete", "Show New + Existing", "Complete", "Current Phase", or "All" displays the coarse fill patterns of all the elements.

    Setting the phase filter to "New + Demo" over-rides all the element patterns to diagonal hatch both for Plan and Section views.

    Graphic over-rides do not over-ride it.

    Am I missing some obvious simple over-ride setting somewhere else that monkeys with things associated with Demo phase or is this one of those
    "Revit knows better" things?

    Check to see if there's a Material applied in your Phase Graphic Overrides dialog box.

      Here's a handy list describing what overrides what Re: Visibilty

      It's also in the Revit Help files if you search for "hierarchy" (and can remember how to spell hierarchy)

        To be clear, it only occurs with the section cuts. Surfaces are not affected.

          It still could be a material, depending what is assigned for cut patterns. In the phase graphics look at what is overridden & not be filter, as it can help narrow it down. From your description it sounds like there is a phase override on those elements in the phase filter - look at that first and check the graphics assigned.

            DaveP, Patrick & jmk, thanks to all three of you. Yes; it was a setting in Phase Filters. "New" stuff was "Overridden". Set by Category did the trick.
