Revit Architecture 2008

I can get the Existing wall assembly to show along with the New Construction wall assembly by using the New Construction phase, and Show Complete filter in View Properties.  How do I show Existing walls as grey while maintaining visability of the wall assembly?  As soon as I override the line color in Settings > Phasing, the assembly detail disapears.

Instead of setting it to show complete, set it to show New and Previous.  This will grey out previous phases.

That will grey out previously phased walls, but also eliminates the wall assembly detail that I want to show.

This is just a little late to the July 2008 post, but as I was looking up the exact same issue and not able to track down an answer on the forum.... I thought I would share my solution I just came across. 

In Settings/Phases/Graphic Overrides, set Existing as Halftone and select "No Material" in the Materials window.  I am still testing this but so far, seems like the results I was looking for - linework as well as assembly layers and cut patterns of the Existing Phase components are shown in grayscale (halftone).  Yes, I think it should work!

Thanks You!!!

I had a hard time figuring out how to set materials to no material, because there is no material called "no material". But it's as easy as selecting the material text and deleting it.

I really though i wasn't going to be able to acheive this. This forums awesome! thanks again!

In REVIT 2011, it's similar but with a slight variation.  In Phases > Graphic Overides, ovveride the cut patters in the existing phase, and click 'Visible'.  This will allow wall and floor assemblies to be seen, and they should already be in a lighter grey due to the phasing filter.  You can do the same with surface patterns if desired.

Cheers, D
