Is there any way to turn off the visibiltiy of one wall type on a view? I have made a sub catagory of walls in the object styles menu but cannot assign that to a wall. I basically have an external perimeter brick wall that I want to hide in all views allowing me to see the building behind. Could you let me know if this is possible.

Matt, The simplest solution to your problem is not a Visibility / Graphics setting. You should use Worksets to control the display of this. You should have as user created worksets as possible, and they should refer to building systems (not like layers) The typical worksets that I use are as follows: 1) Exterior Shell (which you should use to solve your problem) 2) Interior Content 3) Stairs & Cores 4) Site 5) Structure 6) Furniture (optional) I only use these six. I have not ever needed to create any more than this. By using worksets, you can quickly control the visibility of an entire building system. For example: you may be designing an office building and you want to create a view that shows only the shell & core of the building while all of your interior partitions are turned off. Using worksets allows you to easily turn off all the interior content of the building. If you don't know how to enable worksets, let me know I can send you a pdf tutorial that I made (it is crude, but informative)

Thanks for the help. I haven't really explored worksets but understand the principle of them. I will give them a go.
