I have a drawing section that displays three types of objects: 1. existing objects to remain (phase created: Exist) 2. existing objects to demolish (phase created: Exist. phase demolished: Demo) 3. new construction (phase created: Project Completion.) How should I set up my phase filter so all the objects are shown? (Preferably, exist-to-remain as halftone, demo'ed objects as dashed lines, and new construction as By Category.) The simple answer is to change the Phase Demolished for my objects to demolish to Project Completion instead of Demo, but that would interfere with an entirely different drawing sheet I have set up. Is there another solution?

Set new construction = By Category Existing = Overridden Demolished = Overridden Current Phase = New construction... HTH.

Ah, I would, but at New Construction Phase, the objects to Demolish are already demolished and gone, so they do not appear....

I see... True. Only other thing i can think of is to duplicate the view and set it up to only display the demo stuff with the appropriate phase filter, then overlay the views on the sheet... HTH.

Thanks! But how do I overlay views? I'm assuming I drag the demo-line view onto the same sheet as my New-construction view and somehow align them. How do I snap them together? Also, how can I be sure that only the demo lines are overlayed?

That's correct you drag the views over the top of each other on the sheet, they'll automatically snap to alignment. Set your current phase to demo, and then use a phase filter to only show this phase, most likely with the graphic display overridden. HTH.

Yes, thanks! (But the questions keep coming...) When Revit cuts sections, it doesn't produce 1D linework, but rather 2D planes. So, if you cut a section through a 4-inch wall, the view displays a 4-inch opaque plane with the appropriate cut hatch. So, you can't see anything behind that 4-inch wall section, which is what it should do. However, this becomes a problem when I overlay my sections. When I overlay them, whichever view is on top blocks out the one on the bottom. I only want the linework (the demo linetype) of my Demo view with the 2D plane objects of the New Construction view. Is there a way to get around this? Thanks for your assistance!
