I'm using Revit 2010 and I came across a problem yesterday after having not worked on my project over the weekend. (Pictures attached)

 

When I was working on the project last week, windows appeared as white cutouts as they normally should, but as of yesterday, they've all become shaded in. As you can see by the first picture (I've marked them in blue) they blend in with the wall, but they should be white to stand out. I was wondering if there's a graphical issue or if a setting was changed that I wasn't aware of.

 

My second window question is about the window tags. I'm making a split level home, and I've got 2-stories worth of windows on the upper floor. I placed the higher windows in the elevation view, but I'd like to see their window tags in my plan view.

I've changed the height of the viewing plane, but I don't want to see the higher windows, just see their tags on the plan. On the second picture I've marked the tags I want visible in red, the rakeheads I don't want to see in dark blue, and the upper fixed trim windows and light blue. I was wondering if there's a fix that would affect the entire level.

 

If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated.

If you notice, your window sill appears to be gone too.  I would check your VP and look at tyour cut plane elevation.

 

In order for a tag to show, the element (or a portion of it) must be in view.   Why don't you do a seperate partial plan  of the wallright beside this with the higher windows?

Here are the settings on my window for the sill height, as well as my view plane properties, just incase it can help figure out what's wrong with that.

 

As for the partial plan, how do you mean? A small plan on that same plan just offset from that wall? Or do you mean a separate plan in the Floor Plans family?

Unfortunately that didn't seem to help. That screencast went a little too fast for me, and even watching it several times and following through, those steps didn't clear up my issue.

 Thank you for your time though.
