Using Revit 2008 here.  I have a wall section showing a demolished window to be filled with 4" and 8" masonry.  I am trying to use the detail components to fill in the window opening and by doing so, it covers the window and its hidden lines which I want to show in front of the components.  I have so far tried sending the components draw order to back, and using the linework tool with hope that it would force the line to appear in front.  Neither have worked.  I am about ready to redraw the window lines using detail lines so it can be placed in front of the detail components.  But I wanted to see if there are solutions to my problem or workarounds before doing so.  Thanks!

Can you not use phases to achieve this?  Detail components are 2d and always cover model components.

IF YOU MAKE A COPY OF YOUR 2D COMPONENT, THEN OPEN TO EDIT THE NEW COMPONENT AND THERE YOU WILL REMOVE THE FILL REGION WHICH IS SET TO SOLID WHITE AND THEN RELOAD.  SEE IF IT WORKS

Manny,

 I think I know what you are trying to tell me - making the fill regions within the block components from opaque to transparent, right?  I have tried that too and by doing so, the block pattern of the blocks gets embedded with the pattern of the wall object filling in the window opening.  It appears more likely the best solution for this specific issue is to draw detail lines over where the demolished window lines are and group them.

 The section was fine where it was before with the dashed window lines covering the wall materials in section view.  The only problem was those above me wanted to show block components in the window opening insted of a masonry fill.
