Hi all, I'm new to this forum and new to Revit. I've been working on school work and sometime from the last time I save and today I've done something to make my walls invisible when drawn. every time I draw a wall--it doesn't show. I've looked in a couple different places, I've looked in the help section but it's so big. I don't know what I did to make it so I can't see my walls. Could someone maybe explain what I did and how I can fix this? Thanks in advance

Hi blueyes, welcome here.....Ok, you have to check this: if your walls are not foundation walls or in your Visibility Graphics you didn't uncheck the walls category.....

Sounds like you hidden the walls by category.

Go to the visual graphics override screen (shortcut = vv)

scroll down to walls and select the box on the left.

Thanks, I jsut checked and the box IS checked. and I thought I would try another wall and this is the error I get..? and the walls are still invisible."None of the created elements are visible in Floor Plan: Level 1 View. You may want to check the active view, its Parameters, and Visibility settings, as well as any Plan Regions and their settings."I really have no idea what I did...

Also, make sure the gase constraint is the floor you are drawing on.  For instance, if your base constraint is +6'-0", you'd be drawing the wall(s) above the 4' cut line of your floor plan.  Make sure the base offset is at 0'-0".

Also check what your view is set to-if you are using structure the default view is structure-change it to architecture or coordination. Right click anywhere on your screen go to view properties and change the discipline.
