So I had the clever idea to use Symbolic Lines (Hidden Projection style) to represent windows that are above the cut plane.  Within the window family, I added these lines and made them visible regardless of cutplane location.  HOWEVER, in the Building Model, these windows' symbolic lines are only showing up on one wall orientation.  I then noticed that "Symbolic Lines are View AND DIRECTION specific".  WTF?!  What are the purpose of Symbolic lines for windows or doors (door swings!), if when you rotate the door or window, they dissappear!

Question:  How does one represent windows above the cutplane, with dashed lines, within the window family?

Any help would put an end to an afternoon of frustration :^)

For the rest,

You have 2 kind of lines;

Symbolic lines wich are view specific.

Modellines, they show in each view (also 3d this is why you might want to use the symbolic lines in this case)

When using REVIT 2010 I asume you don't have subsription (?), when you do you can download an ad-on on the subscription site to convert lines from model to symbolic or the other way alround. In Revit 2011 this is a standard comand.

YOU MIGHT TRY USING A "PLAN REGION" FOR THOSE WINDOWS.

HDD has given you a good answer about how to get your upper windows to show.  Your plan region boundry can also be left on or turned off.

 

As far as why your symbollic line question.... Some portion of the window has to be in the view or cut by the view plane in order for anything to show.  

 

BTW - This is a professional site so please refrain from using any vulgarity ... even abbreviated.  It is not appreciated.
