There are several things I look at when troubleshooting a visibility issue in Revit software. Below is a list of items I check for, before considering an installation issue, software corruption or drawing issue/corruption.
- Is the element/object category turned on in Visibility Graphics (VG)?
- Is this a workshared project?
- If so, is this element/object on a workset that is not on in this view?
- If you can see the element in one type of view, but not in another, check to see how the family was built. It could have to do with level of detail, or there may not have been anything drawn for the family in one type of view or another.
- Are there any filters applied to the view that may be overriding the graphics.
- Is this project phased?
If none of these elements/objects are the culprit, and you have a similar view type that is correct, take the following action.
- Duplicate the view you are working on.
- Create a view template from the similar working view by right clicking on the view and select Create View Template from View, name it and select OK.
- Right click on the copy of the non working view and apply the template you just created.
If the above didn't work, I generally try creating a new plan view, it's possible that the view has become corrupt, creating a new view often resolves the issue. To create a new plan view, go to the View Tab, select the down arrow under Plan Views and select the view type you need, make sure you deselect do not duplicate existing views so you can see all the levels in your project.
