Window trim visibility

Question

So I have my window in wall with it's trim set to on and placed in a class via the settings dialog.  I want it to show in elevation but not in plan.  I can have it show or hide in elevation but turning the class to invisible has no effect in top plan.  The trim still shows.  How can I get the trim to disappear in top plan?

thanks

Are you sure that the class you set to invisible is not the active class? The active class and the active layer are always visible regardless of the visibility settings.

 

Does the trim disappear in 3D when you set the class to invisible? If not, perhaps the trim is in a different class than you think.

Thanks Pat but no, the active class is None.  I should add that in Plan it will disappear when classed off.  In Top Plan, it remains visible.

Maybe something to do with wireframe vs OpenGL?

And yes the trim does disappear in 3D.

And I can't class them off in viewports set to top plan

Check your settings in both the 2D Visualisation tab and the Classes tab in the window settings.

Change your Trim class in 2D Visualisation to Window-trim and see if that does what you're after.

Christiaan.  That did it! Thanks a lot.  Sheesh.  You'd think it would be simpler than this.
