    Nested detail items in families

    I have a detail item in a revit family, in some views I want to see the detail item and in some views I dont want to see it...so the obvious idea is to just switch off detail items in that view. But for some reason the detail item doesn't switch off completely. The lines disappear but the filled regions stay, but are grey...almost like a shadow of the filled region

    Hi check out if your filled regions are transparent or Opaque!

    or try to upload your family here to look for the problem!! regards

        Which ones you want to see the detail item and which ones don't?

        In what type of views are you seeing this behavior?, I've put your family in a project and AFAICS is a problem of visibility parameters, but not sure till I'll have your answers

        I'll be here to try to solve this with you, regards

          I have lighting layouts in which I want to see the detail items with light fitting, then I have ceiling finishes drawings in which I want to see the light fitting, but not the detail item

            so you can add a visibility parameter to hide the detail item in the desired views, I've added a parameter to your family to do that, check it out to see if this works for you, regards

              I thought as much.

              Only issue is that the parameter is linked to the family and not the view. So switching off the instance parameter will hide the detail item in all views, not just the view in question.

                I don't know if it's possible to add that kind of parameter but I think is possible; not sure right now but guess is worth to try, regards

                  Subcategories?
                  No, Sorry
                  It will not work with patterns....

                    Shared detail item and a filter to turn them off in the plan view.
