    In my Revit file, where my furniture kisses the wall, the grey furniture lines are correctly obscured by the black wall lines.

    However in the printed output (direct to our printer) and PDFs (Adobe and BioPDF), the grey furniture lines are showing on top of the black wall linework.

    How can I have the black obscure the grey please? Is there a setting to adjust somewhere please?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are the furniture linework Detail or Model lines? Just curious.

    I'd fix it by modifying the detail item to be 1" from the wall/origin...because I like to make things simple.

    Plus, the furniture cannot occupy the same physical space as the wall.

    Thanks for your replies. Yes, I understand these sentiments. Testing showed the same result for Detail and Model linework.
    I have adjusted my origin point.
