I'm working in Revit 2018.3.  I have multiple families (furniture, walls, counters) which are displaying as blue lines, rather than the black designated in the object styles.  I tried to override these in the view by right clicking and overriding graphics, and the families still display with blue lines rather than black.  Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?  I've been plotting in black and white to avoid issues, but I need to add my color scheme to the drawings.  Thanks for your help!

These are family issues and you will probably have to open the family tosee where the problem is.  Typically, I like my furniture families to not show model elements in plan views but use symbollic linework instead.  Yours may be either way.  If the do use symbollic linework, they may even have their a different category linetype so look at that as well.

Thank you for your replies!  I have investigated your suggesions, but it doesn't seem like this is the source of the problem (or at least I couldn't find it).  I have attached a few examples to illustrate this.

Example 1: There is a 7" platform that was modeled using the floor command.  The object styles within the model show that floor lines should be black, but the element is still showing as blue.  Furthermore, if I use the override graphics command and set it to black, the lines still remain blue.

 

Example 2: Grab Bar object styles are shown as black lines in the family and display as such in the family model.  They turn to blue lines upon loading them into architectural model (indicating some setting must be overriding them).  However, the model object styles also show the specialty equipment as a black line color.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Have you checked the phasing?  It could be the graphic overides.
