I am using Revit 2014 and am having trouble controlling wall lineweights by using filters to control varying wall types/finishes in a view. I have a few different walls that stack to create a single assembly in this project. For example, I have a CMU wall assembly, a metal stud 'furring' wall and a tile finish each as seprate wall types. 

When I apply my filter and select and apply the 'cut' lineweight override I am not getting a uniform application. Some lines follow the filter override while others are using the defualut wall cut weight. In the image below I have the furring wall assemly set to lineweight 3 and the tile finish as lineweight 2. You can see that lines on each of these are still being displayed at a much heavier weight. 

How do I get the filter to apply to all lines on the wall type? Hopefully the attached reference image helps. Thanks in advance!

You do understand that there are only two linetypes that you can control for walls, correct?  Only the exterior line and for medium and fine views, all interior lines (common edges) are one setting.  That's it.  When you place one wall type against another, there is no "common edge" between them, it is an exterior line for each wall.

I was thinking my filter overrides would modify the lineweight for the whole wall regardless of whether it is an exterior line or interior line.

Your mentioning that makes sense because it is the exterior lines that are displaying too thick. How do I go about modifying the weight of the exterior lines? Is there a way to control them with the filters as well?

Thanks for your wealth of knowledge WWHub.

You can not control these in any automatic way.  For these now "interior lines", you would have to use the linework tool in your views and you have to do that for each wall - two lines in the same place.
