    Can't hide/turn off topo section hatch in plan?

    I have a crawlspace plan that I need the toposurface to be turned on in order to show spot elevations of the grading underneath the building. Due to the sloping site, part of the plan has the cut pattern of the toposurface showing. I'd like for that pattern to not show up, but I can't seem to get it to hide. I've tried turning off toposurface cut patterns (foreground/background) in V/V, tried overriding the toposurface object in the view to do the same thing, and even tried creating a toposurface filter for the view. Nothing works. It works in section views, but not plan views. Is this some sort of hard-coded behavior where the Site Settings Section Cut Material always shows up when cut in plan regardless of other overrides, or am I missing something?

    Yeah that's not what I need. I need to hide the Topo cut hatch pattern in one plan only. I need it to show everywhere else.

    I set it to halftone in the view which sort of helps. The problem is I have some dimension strings that run through the hatch pattern that aren't showing up very well. Halftone helps somewhat, but I'd rather just not have the topo cut pattern at all on this one view.

    Disable the Projection/surface pattern of the topography category in VV, not the cut pattern. This is a strange behavior of toposurfaces.

    hi
    don't know what version of revit you are using but disabling pattern of cut works very well on my 2018.3

    OP asked about plans, not sections.
    I now checked it in 2018.3 as well, on plans projection pattern setting governs the cut pattern, on section cut pattern governs the cut patterns.
