Detail Level Change from 2019 to 2020


Is there a way to get the automatic detail level of doors and windows to show as it was in 2019, with the walls blacked out so to not see their components. Without having to go into every single door on every project to achieve this. It worked perfectly in 2019 as shown but in 2020 the doors and windows show basically no detail at all when the walls are blacked out.

@Scott Crane

 You should be able to control this by changing the layer scale range for the design layer detail levels (see screenshot). You will need your current layer scale to fall in the Medium range to get the Medium-detail graphics.

Thank you but unfortunately that doesn't solve the issue, I probably should have been more clear on my first post. The issue is the detail at low level in 2019 and 2020 are completely different. Is there any way to change this and keep wall components hidden without having to change each door? (areas that have changed indicated by red arrows) We would like to be able to replicate 2019 low level detail in 2020, at the moment we are having to export back to 2019 just to achieve this.

Hi Scott,

If you class your wall components, you can achieve this is by displaying in medium detail and turning off the wall component classes.
