    Truss Framing Visibility

    I'm working with some trusses (Howe Flat Truss - ootb family) and the framing is showing up in my plan view and it shouldn't be, since it is on the level above my plan (13' from level 1 to level 2.) The view range appears correct and the underlay option is set to None. I'm not seeing the truss element itself, just the bottom chord. Oddly this only occurs when the truss is attached to the roof to create a bow truss. Any ideas?

    edit: if I start a new project (no template) I can't get the behavior to replicate

    You can toggle the stick symbol location between top chord and bottom chord in the truss instance properties. Depending on the depth of the truss, visibility could be impacted by view range.

    Turning off the 'Show Pre-Cut In Plan' box in the framing family did the trick, but I'm at a loss as to why... I'll look into the chord location too. Thanks
