    Filled Region visibility problem

    Hello,

    We have a problem with a filled region. simple you might say!

    Basically there is a filled region in a plan view, overridden with 50% transparency. The region shows perfectly fine in the plan, but when we put the plan on sheets, this region becomes sort of Opaque. It is the same situation on different levels.

    If I try to recreate the problem in a new project, everything is perfect, no problem. we do this all the time.

    It also prints corrupted like that.
    What we already tried:
    -Changing the type of region to transparent makes it completely transparent, leaving only walls colored... really strange.
    -View is in hidden line mode,
    -No hidden elements underneath that could disrupt this
    -No filters
    -No images underneath the region

    Please view attached snip,

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Quick Update, we just tried switching to Vector printing and it prints correctly, even though in the sheet view, in Revit, it is still opaque. Might be just a revit bug?

      Hi snuffy, I already had that problem :banghead:, I found the same solution as you do :laugh:; but it was more odd for me because I had plans that printed like yours but I hadn't any filled region :crazy:, for me switching to Vector printing was a solution since my plans printed correctly, I believe this is more a Revit Bug or a missing update

        Switching to Vector printing? Isn't that the default setting? We only print Raster where we have to, such as elevation views with shadows on, because Revit makes us do it.

          The printing settings that were used for these specific plans were set to 'raster printing'. I am not aware of why or whom has made it like that, but they probably had a reason (faster pdf exporting maybe)
          What exactly do you mean by saying that Revit makes you do? Whenever I print an elevation, with shadows, I always do it as a vector. Is this not recommended?

            Afaik know vector printing is faster than raster. Doesnt matter what youre print settings are, if you have images or shadows on in your view revit will print it raster.

              Yep, this. Our exterior elevation template is set to have shadows turned on, and we always see a message about sheets with exterior elevation views will be printed as Raster. Kind of sucks but it is what it is.
