sliding glass door not showing up in plan view

Recommended Posts

Here is a plan view of a window at the top right (elevation 2' and a sliding glass door at the bottom left (elevation 0).  I've set the parameters to be identical as far as jamb, sash etc.... Is there a way to have the door show up like the window?  I can't seem to find the right parameter.

I see similar from my Revit import Doors,

where Doors use just a Symbol for all Geometry,

where these Symbols have no 2D part.


So I see a single line at best - when selected.

Yes, I could let create VW the new top and side views depending on scale.

I just don’t really need it. But it is a bit distracting when you see just a gap

in your Walls in Top Plan View..

But I think Minottos problem is more just a visibility issue with Classes,

as yo said.

@minottoHi, This issue can arise if something is way off internal origin of the program. Turn on all classes and do a select all and zoom extents. 

Display your internal origin. If you have things way off in the distance delete them if you know what they are untill you get Z extents with just your drawing. See if this helps.

It turned out to be a visibility issue with the Sills Class. 


Thanks for everyone's input.
