Our firm is creating a set of presentation drawings which require not only plan views that show the differentiation of open office space and circulation space (easy enough with a color fill in an area plan), but also to show this same differentiation in a building section view.  I have not come across any ways to create a color fill area in a view other than a plan (although you can tag a room in section, you can't give it a color fill).  I tried looking into creating a filled region with color, but it does not seem that you can create a colored fill pattern that is transparent.  Did not found an answer not even on the Revit 2008 tutorials

I cannot find any way to automatically create a presentation color fill, though it would be a worthwhile addittion to the next version of Revit.  You can, however create a transparent color fill. 

While in your section, do the following:


1. From the Draftingmenu, choose Filled Region

2. On the Design Bar, choose Region Properties

3.  Click Edit/New, then Duplicate.  Rename the pattern to Color 1 (or whatever you desire)

4. Change the fill pattern to solid fill

5.  Change the Background to Transparent

6.  Change the color to whatever you wish.

7.  Click the OKs back to get you back to the drawing.

8.  Draw your region and finish sketch.


Unfortunately, you need to make a new region style for every color.
