I am making a lighting plan, and the lineweight of the switches will not change even when I override the visibility setting for that view and set the electrical fixtures' lineweight to 3. In another plan view, showing electrical outlets, I've changed the same visibility settings, and the lineweights of the outlets show up correctly.

Using Revit Architecture 2008--

Am I missing something? Thanks!

Similar problem. I want to change the lineweight for the electrical fixture symbols. I can change the light fixture lineweight via VG but not fixtures???

Edit your symbols family and look at what types of lines were used.  If they are generic annotations, then the lineweight is controlled under VG/annotations/generic annotations.  If you want siomething special, you could create a new sub-category ... maybe generic/electrical thin .... that could then be controlled seperately.

W,

Thanks. I think i overrode a bunch of other objects but didn't see that one. I was even overriding objects that were nested in the family. Generic Annotations worked like a charm. Now if I'm thinking this thru correctly, when i override the object styles that will override Generic Annotations in all views...Correct?

thanks again,

John

If you do it in object styles, the result is project wide... otherwise VG is view specific.

Another thing that could be an issue is to make sure to check your display model under your view template and it is turned to normal and not halftone.
