    make a selected wall invsible

    I know I can make them ALL invisble in VG

    can I select a single wall and, without changing the wall type, make that VG for that wall transparent without affecting all the other walls?

    Thanks

      ah - i did not explain too well - i want it transparent - not hidden. I can do all walls in VG by ticking transprent - just wondered if I could do it to a singe wall.

        Select the wall. In the Modify tab, select the paint brush icon under the view section. Select "override by element". When the box comes up, check transparent.

          Add a shared parameter to the wall called transparent it can a yes/ no parameter, then based on this parameter, you can add a filter.
          In the dialog for the filter you chose the parameter created to filter all walls that have the transparent parameter assigned to them and change the graphic representation of that element based on the filter.

                You can right-click and "Override Graphics in View... by Element" as well.
                Not really any different than Dan's method - just if you prefer Right-click to Ribbon-pick.
                Both get you to the same place.

                    Yep, I keep forgetting about the right click menus. I was a keyboard guy in ACA. I just haven't set up all my keystrokes in Revit yet. I'm just getting to where I know what commands I use often. lol
