    2nd Floor Blocking 2nd Floor Elements

    Has anyone ever had a floor blocking other elements on the floor plan it's for? How could it display above other elements if it's below them?

    I have a project where one view had that happen. It was using a view template that wasn't causing issues on other floors.

    views that used other templates didn't have the same issue on that floor.

    This is for an architectural linked model.

    Yep.

    I see it happen quite a bit. When i see it, its because the folks have Underlays turned on, and they dont understand how underlays work. So the view starts to *look funny* because items are missing from the underlay, and they are items that arent visible in the normal view, as well.

    The view doesn't have underlay on but I did notice that the view template Underlay Orientation was set to look up instead of down. Don't know why that would affect it if the underlay was off, but it did fix it.
