I want to know what's the best way to do this?I create a level below 0'-0" (sub slab).From the reflected ceiling view of the level, I can see the bottom of the slab and slab edge below the floor slab.From this view, I want to show the walls above the slab.  How can I make the slab edges visible, the walls visible and the floor slab invisible in this view?

Did you try over-ridng graphics in view by element for the slab and making it transparent?

Yes, that's right.

Right now, I just hide the slab in this particular view.  How do you make the slab transparent?

Un-hide it...then right click on it - select over-ride graphics in view...check the transparent box....

Cool.  It works.

Now, the next question.  After I make the element transaparent by overriding it, how do I restore it back since the element becomes invisible?

I realize that you can make the elements halftone of transparent, is there a way I can make them in certain color?  Like RED?

Gee ........Why don't you just experiment with the options you see when you use the over-ride function....
