Viewport Class Overides

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am getting frustrated with Viewport Class Overrides.

I have roofs and roof faces. They are all on class Roof-Main, which is set to 'use at creation'. All the roofs and roof faces have attributes set to 'use by class' (class style) etc.

In my floor plan viewport I set the roof-main class to override so that only an outline of the roof will show. I do this by class override, so that Roof-Main has a dashed line and no fill.

But only one of the roof faces accepts the class override correctly.

The funny thing is, the override is partially working. If I change the color of the lines using calss overrides, then that works on all the roofs.

The dashes only show on the one roof face, which also correctly displays the fill or hatch that I set in the class override.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance. Mat

Check the object if they use that attributes by class. It's not because of the option 'use at creation' is turned on that the object uses the attributes of the class.

In other words: go to the Design Layer in which the offending object(s) reside, select the object(s), use the little pulldown at the bottom of the attributes palette to "Make All Attributes By Class". Now go back to the VP, select it and update....

Let us know if this works...

I don't have a pulldown at the bottom of the attributes pallet.

I have one for each of the attibutes, but not one for "make all attributes by class."

There are two at the bottom of my attributes pallet...one for each of the arrowheads.

It's in my signature: VW(build)83388 [2008 sp3].

I went to the build number because 2008 sp2 had multiple builds.

BTW, the OP is on 12.5 ...and I don't have the arrow.

Yes, it is. But you can force the same effect manually, by: Select Object(s), then going to each field in the Attributes Palette and changing it to "By Class" (or is it "Use Class"?)...
