Door Leaf Detail Level in Plan Changed in VW2020?


Hi Everyone,


My coworkers and I encountered a problem after updating VW from 2019-2020:


Previously in our typical floor plan sheets, we set the Viewport - Detail Level to Low; whereas in enlarged plans we set the Viewport - Detail Level to Medium, so the wall components only show up in the enlarged plans. 


After updating to 2020, for doors in plan viewports with Detail Level set to Low, the door leaf is now only showing as one line and no door jamb is shown. Unlike in the previous version, the change of Detail Level of the viewport does not change how the doors are shown.


We prefer the previous way. Does anyone know how to change it back to the previous setting?


Thank you!

I'm not positive if this also affect sheet layer viewports, but …


If you look at File > Documents Document Settings > Document Preferences… > Display Tab do you have Auto display detail levels for design layers checked?

Thanks, Michael! And no it is not checked, and I am not sure how this would affect the sheet layer viewports?

Me either.  I was troubleshooting another problem and found that turning that on and setting the high threshold below 1/4" made a difference for the issue I was having..  


I'm not sure what the expected behavior should be if it is not selected.
