I would like to know if there is a heiarchy to the graphic parameters associated with phasing and materials.  I am working on a renovation project where I need new walls to have black poche', existing walls (not involved in the renovation) to be lighter/halftoned, and existing walls which are inviolved in the renovation to be light gray poche'.  I have spent a few hours trying to figure out the relationship between phasing graphics overrides and materials assigned to the elements.  Can I have a wall type on two phases showing differently?  i.e. the "new" 12" masonry wall looks different than the existing 12" masonry wall?  Both have the same wall type.  Also walls change how they are displayed when changing the phase filter, why?  It is the same wall with the same wall type and hasn't switched phases or location.

"Also walls change how they are displayed when changing the phase filter, why? "

The Phase filter is what you create to control how the 4 elements (New, Existing, Demolished, Temporary) get displayed graphically.If you don't want to change how things are displayed, why are changing the Phase Filter?

"Can I have a wall type on two phases showing differently?"

I not quite sure what you mean by this.   An element can exsit only in one Phase. I can create Wall A (Type Brick) in Phase 1 and then in Phase 2 create Wall B (Type Brick) and have them display different graphically. Because when I'm in Phase 2 Wall A is considered "Existing", and Wall B is considered "New". Is this what you mean?

Coreed, thanks for your response.  (Great profile pic for this vetrans weekends!  Go military!)  Let me first say, I'm not always that great at assembling my thoughts/words.  It always sounds more clear in my head than when I put it out for everyone to hear/see.  I solved some of my problem by resetting the graphics override per element.  Then the elements seem to show according to the phase graphics.  In the floorplan.  In regards to the two walls inquiry, I am wondering if walls of the same type can be on different phases and show differently.  I'm assuming "yes" or there wouldn't be a phase graphics override option. Or do I need to make a different wall type to differentient "new" 12" masonry walls from "existing" 12" masonry walls?  However, in my RCP the "existing" walls are showing the same as the "new" walls.  I just checked them and they are on different phases, overrides have been "reset", as well as the phase graphic override settings have been verified.  I'm not sure why they are not taking on the desired graphics.
