HVAC Diffuser Tool attribute issue

Recommended Posts

I'm having similar issues with my HVAC Diffuser PIO's as with window and column objects where they don't obey the class attributes... Anybody know why this happens? Please see the attached screenshot...

I have always had a problem with the MEP tools and class attributes - namely the line type. Today I tried to use the straight duct tool to coordinate with my engineering consultants. In a viewport, the duct does not follow the class attributes for class line type (a dotted line). This is really annoying and discourages me from using the tool. I've even looked in the OIP for ways to add class attributes to the object.

On the design layer, is the object set to Use Class Attributes?  If not, then there is no way to override them. The viewport will set the attributes for the class, but since the object does not use the class they won't override.
