    That might be part of it - I've never tired on MEP system objects, just floors, casework and the like.

    A solid background pattern + a crosshatch foreground pattern should do the trick, as long as you have a solid something in the view.

    Many of my pet peeves relate to the family editor and how those families can be scheduled.

    The major items are:

    We copy/paste them into the new phase. They usually get a parameter so we can filter/color fill existing rooms if needed. We will manually tag them differently. The rooms are important for our...

    The families where I see the error are those where I've arrayed a family, and have a parameter specifying the offset between instances in an array. When I initially built them I tried defining it...
