I'm trying to find the best way to turn off some filled regions (loaded into a family with an instance visibility parameter) in a linked file. I'm working in an HVAC plan and the lights, other than the shading, appear correctly. In an RCP view the shading is gone but my plan isn't correct. We were advised to turn off light fixtures in the view then create an RCP with just the light fixtures and place it over the plan view on the sheet. This gets rid of the shading, but it also gets rid of the hidden lines where the lights are beneath the ductwork, that and I feel it's a poor work-around. (And why is the filled region visible in the plan but not the rcp? As far as I can tell the settings are the same for each view.)

 They are light fixtures with a filled region for emergency lighting and a visibility parameter and I haven't been able to find a way to get them to turn off but still have the items we need visible. I've tried applying a filter and trying to get a sub-category to work with no luck. Any ideas?

So what your dealing with here is a nested generic annotation on the lights, that will not be able to be turned off by using the instance parameter or the . I am assuming that since you are having these issues there is no one doing the electrical layout in your office? If they are then have them place the lights so you have more control over them.


What if you copy/monitor the architectural lights into your project? I know the funcationality does not work 100% but it might be a better way to control how they are viewed.
