2D Geometry not showing up on Hybrid symbol


Hi Everyone,  I'm working on a groundplan for the architecture of a theatre.  I made the 3d components then when I drew the 2d geometry in top/plan view I made a hybrid symbol but the only thing that's showing up is the 3D geometry in plan view.  Any thoughts?

Check the symbol in the Resource Manager.  It probably has a 3 next to it, indicating that it is a 3D symbol.  If so, then the 2D elements are being treated as 3D.


Edit the 3D part of the symbol.  You will see the 2D objects laying on the "floor".  Select them.  In the OIP change the plane from whatever it is to "Screen".  When you exit the symbol you will get a warning that you are changing it from a 3D to a hybrid.  Say OK.


In the Resource Manager the 3 next to the symbol will be gone, indicating that it is a hybrid symbol.
