I am trying to override the surface pattern of a wall in an elevation view (no view template has been applied to the view). I followed these steps:

1. highlight element

2. right click

3. go to 'override graphics in view'

4. select 'by Category' ('by element' and 'by filter' are grayed out, but 'by category' is not)

After I do this, nothing happens. Has anyone had this problem, and know of a fix?

Thank you

Try just doing this in VG since it is a category.

That object must have had subcategories. Override graphics in view by category and VG change the same database values / have the same effect.

To make all these adjustments directly in the selected objects you can try Graphic Studio that lets manipulate both the categories and element graphics. In this way you do not need to look after the right subcategories in the visuality graphic lists, you just select the object and adjust the graphics.
