I created curtain wall where parts of the curtain wall are the regular wall condition.  However, when I pin all of the panels to the regular wall condition, they all turn back to glass.  What do I need to differently to avoid this?

Use solid a panel where the parts aren't glass and give that the regular wall material colour/bump.  Im not a big fan of pinning, I just leave everything as they are

nklank - You are using a preset storefront. 


You can create storefronts with any or all components and/or spacings preset.  When you use these, you need to be aware that Revit will always try to restore the preset conditions unless you disable that function. 


Preset storefronts are great for initial placement but after I place them, I like to change the type to one that has no pre-set conditions so that I can alter them.  Note ... when Revit warns you "Type associated gridlines..." do not delete the gridlines.  If you do, you willloose all your mulliuons and panels but otherwise, everything will remain in place.
