Greetings,

I have imported a Family item into my main drawing, placed the plan view of the item on a sheet and am now trying to view the plan by cutting through it at about 1m above the associated level so i get a kind of section but in plan view.

However the plan view is just showing as though I were looking down on top of it. I know that I need to open the Family Editor and select certain items and adjust their 'Visibility Settings' in order to have them show as being 'cut' in the plan. However it appears that you can only select one or a few elements at a time. This is time consuming and infuriating. How can I select the entire family and adjust the visibilty settings at once?

Many thanks,

CM.

Thanks for the pointer, however i have selected the appropriate settings and adjusted the view range accordingly but still cannot see the cut in plan view.

Any other suggestions?

Many thanks.

CM.

The model was a 'Metric Casework' category, but following a tip I found on a forum on the net I have copied this family into a new 'Metric Generic Model' and the family now views as being 'cut' when in plan view with the view range adjusted accordingly. Those discussing the matter in that particular thread concluded that it must have been a 'glitch'.

Its a bit of a bummer now because to overcome this problem we have to copy and paste all our casework families into new casework drawings and reload.

Many thanks,

CM.
