I'm new to Revit and working on a Life Safety Plan were I would like to utilize Filled Regions as Smoke Compartments but I am having difficulty with the visibility of the lines surrounding the Filled Region.  Regular detail lines are visible over the top of walls, however the lines associated with the boundary of the filled region are not visible over walls.

 

In other words I want the lines of the filled region 'on top' of the walls.  'Move to Front' doesn't work...

Are you sure you have a line style set to something other than <invisible> when you are drawing your filled region?

All 2D linework is overtop of model lines.  I will bet that you are using invisible lines for your region boundry lines.  Change that.

I am not using invisible lines.  The boundary line for the filled region is set to a very thick solid line.  Some walls overlap the region boundary line, some do not.  See the attached PDF.  Some of the plan (to the left side of the sheet) is a linked CAD file, however the area in the lower right is modeled in Revit.  The exterior walls seem to be behind the filled region, some of the interior walls are over-riding it.

If it were consistant that would be one thing, but this inconsistency is frustrating...

Boundry lines are not set as a style.  Edit you boundry sketch then window the entire sketch at look at the funnel filter..... Is there only one line style shown there?

 

2D CAD (Inserted this view only) is considered annotative and responds to front/back.  Send it backwards if it is 2D.

This seems to be a glitch associated with the solid fill.  Switching to a hatch pattern fixes everything.

I am having the same issue with R2017.  Solid color transparent hatch with dashed borders.  No border lines show up. 

Wireframe solved my issue.
