When I insert a detail component of a steel beam in section view the perimeter of the beam's lineweight is as thin as the steel hatching. To change this lineweight you go to Manage > Object Styles > and click the + sign next to Detail Items. The perimeter of the steel beams lineweight is controlled by the sub category Heavy Lines. When I change the Heavy Line lineweight to a higher number to increase the line thickness nothing happens. The lineweights are not overwritten in the Visibilty Graphics window either. I've been trying everything and found that if I go to just the category Detail Items and change the number, the steel beam's perimeter and hatching both changes to this lineweight. I don't want both the perimeter lineweight and the hatch the same lineweight. I'm having this problem in Revit 2014. However, my Revit 2015 version responds in changing the steel sections individual lineweights. The steel beam detail component is an "out of the box" component and the steel hatching is also. Is there a setting I'm missing in my Revit 2014 version???

You have to look at the detail families you are using.  We have modified some of ours because we don't like how the stock ones are built.  In most cases, these types of families are filled rgions with the perimeter filled region linework set to detail.   This may not be what you want.  You might want it to be heavy, light or medium - all under the detail settigs.  That will give you more control.


PS - It appears that they changed this to heavy for WF sections in 2015.....
