We are doing a renovation of an existing building. I have to demo a existing door and part of the wall beside it to create a large opening into a Corridor. I'm having a problem trying to get the "overhead gray lines" to disappear. I used the "Opening" family to demo out the portion of existing wall I need to remove and this worked fine. But when I try to do the same thing with the area of the door (new infill wall), the floor plan shows "overhead gray lines" where the "opening" is. Is there any way to make them go away? I've checked the family file and there are NO symbolic lines to be showing in floor plan. I want the floor plan to show a "clear" opening. Attached are two images to explain my problem...image #1 shows the demolished door and portion of wall...image #2 shows the opening and "overhead gray lines" that I can not get rid of.

Is there any underlay turned on? Does the wall continue below the floor level?

There is no underlay. The wall starts 8" under the slab. Post edited on 2005-12-06 08:26:43

In reason for this? It would probably work better if the wall began flush with the slab. What your most likely seeing is the edge of the wall intersecting with the slab.
