Hello everyone,

Is it possible to chage the draw order in Revit 2017? If I have grey objects close to a wall, the grey lines come in top of the thicker black line of the cutted wall. I found that if I place grey objects first and then walls I don't have this problem, but it's tricky. So my question is if it is possible to bring the grey objects under the wall.

Please see the image attached.

I know that I could use Bluebeam or something similar to set line merge, but I'm looking for a no-expensive solution.

Thanks either way.

actually i tried to recreate the problem u have , but i couldn't , both ways the furniture goes under the wall in my project , i changed the category of the furniture to something else and also it wouldn't happen , but if you need an urgent solution - a non expensive one - you can select all your wall and cut them to clipboard and paste at the same place , " if you can attach a file with the wall and the furniture only it would help "

This may not be a real problem, did you check on how it plots?

Your furniture is probably symbollic line work.  Would it really be against the wall?  < Only if wall mounted headboard.


Also make sure you have all your updates installed.  We ask you to include, in your post, what Revit version anmd what update you are using because there are problems that may have been fixed in an update.
