    Specialty equipment vs NEW specialty equipment

    For some reason, it looks as though my view graphics / visibility settings have distinguished specialty equipment and "new specialty equipment, as being two different things, and "new specialty equipment" category is not showing. I don't see a category of "new specialty equipment" as being a separate entity to show or hide, but alas, it's not showing in my view. Any ideas?

    When I edit the specific family, again, there is no option to assign it as a "new" specialty equipment, yet the category somehow persists and is causing visibility issues. For our purposes, this "new" category is irrelevant, and it should all just be regular specialty equipment. And yet, I can't change the category in the family editor. Again, where is this new category coming from?

    Can you post a screenshot where you are seeing this new category?

    Is this New Specialty Equipment listed under the Specialty Equipment category? If so that was introduced by a Specialty Equipment family that someone added a subcategory called New Specialty Equipment.

    Either that or we have just accidentally discovered a useful Revit hack.

    What do you mean by "view graphics / visibility settings have distinguished"?
    Is the regular vs new displayed differently? Perhaps one is half-tone, or dashed?
    You mention "new category", but you also say there is no new category.
    My guess is either a Phase setting or a Filter
