Maybe someone can help me - I'm trying to use a Solid Fill Pattern for my New Construction Phase, but can't figure out how to have the walls show up at 60% or 80%, or for that matter anything less than 100% black.  Is there a way to have a gray fill pattern?  The SOLID fill is not editable, unlike the others.  Thanks much.

not sure i understand this question, but filled regions have a lot of options, maybe investigate it further.  but it sounds like you might be wanting to control whole aspects of parts of the view.  i suggest you look hard at phase filters and their over rides, plus object styles, both globally and by view.  help is really helpful - search on these topics and you might find your answer.

Thanks for the reply. 

This question doesn't concern Filled Fegions specifically: regardless of whether it's a Filled Region or a Phase Graphic Override, for any FILL PATTERN the SOLID option is not editable.  It comes out solid black.  That's a nice option and I use it a lot.  However, what I am looking to do is make the fill pattern on the walls be gray, or as AutoCAD puts it 80% Shade (or 20%, or 40%, etc.).  So I tried using a regular, editable pattern - like CROSSHATCH - with a tighter spacing of the pattern.  Unfortunately this doesn't print, coming out just plain white. 

It looks like there needs to be a new Pattern created for a Gray SOLID, and I wondered if anyone had anything like that already.  Maybe I need to post to the Wishlist forum.  Because it's not possible to edit the original SOLID, I wonder if the only way to get it is thru AutoDesk.

Thanks again for any help.

I had just posted the message above when I turned back to the problem and solved it.  I missed something obvious.  It's really easy - all i had to do was change the color of the Fill.

It is so easy that I am embarrased. 

Thanks.  Hopefully this posting will help others.

so glad you worked it out.  i should have suggested the colour option, but i figured you had tried that!  revit has depths within depths, and it can be frustrating sometimes.  your post will definitely help others.
