I have a section view that shows hot and cold water and heating pipes etc and natural gas and drainage. All of them display as solid in the section except for natural gas which shows as a line and riser symbol which is fine. I've tried to figure out why the pipes show like this but have had no luck. This section is in fine detail, when in medium or coarse the pipes show as big circles but all the same size even though they are different sizes. Any ideas?

I don't work with Pipes a whole lot but it may be because your scale is set to 1:100, have you tried scaling the drawing up a bit more, maybe to 1/16 or 1/8 and see if that helps

Nah doesnt work, I'm stumped, surely there must be a fair amount of people with this problem? The gas and LTHW pipes have the same properties by the looks of it but show up different....very wierd
