Has anyone had problems with object styles not implimenting properly.  I have attached a .pdf file showing my proble,:

I want my structural steel joists to be a different color than my other structural steel memebrs.  I have modeled all of them with structural usage set to "joist" and was hoping to change that setting in my manage>>settings>>object styles.  However, it does not change their color.  Everything is still orange?  They will not update even under Visibility Graphics.  I can hide them all in my view...so the usage is set correctly.  But I can't change their color there either?

 Any Ideas or thoughts?

Greg

From what I understand, if you go in a family, in the element properties of extrusions, sweeps, ect.. there is a subcategory setting. If set to none, that element will take on the categoty setting. In your case, orange and have a lineweight of 1. Or you can set it to any subcategory you create and the element will take on that property. But not the Joist, Girder, Purlin, ect.. subcategories.

You can create new subcategories by going into, Settings/Object Styles/Modify Subcategories/New of any family.

The Joist, Girder, Purlin, ect.. subcategories only apply to model and symbolic lines that are set to <Defined by Instance>. In your case, a line set to <Defined by Instance> would be magenta and have a lineweight of 4 if the usage is set to Joist. The <Defined by Instance> tells Revit to utilize the usage of your structural framing. But just like extrusion, sweeps, ect.. a line can also be set to any subcategory that you have created.

Hope this helps.

Holy Crap..that is great.  Thank you so much.  I have been digging aroung for that for so long...i knew it could be changed....somehow.  We became almost convinced that it was a bug in Revit and the color could not be changed...so easy too.  Thanks again!
