    Default Override line color also override weight and style

    If I only override the color of a line in the visibility/graphic dialog and the other parameters remained by category, they do change in solid, weight 1 lines.
    Is this the intended behavior ?

    I have 2 plans of the same level.
    plan 1 has different lines in different colors and thickness
    plan 2 also need these lines in light grey but I would like to keep the different patterns and thickness.

    Seems like I have to check which pattern was assigned to which line style and set it back in the visibility/graphic override dlg if I change the by category color.
    definitely a wish

    Nic,

    I'm not able to replicate that behaviour.

    I can over-ride colour, weight and style view specifically or just colour, for example, with weight and style remaining By Category. Or any other combination.

    Beegee, thanks for the assist

    I have attached my findings
    My initial linetype is a fat blue dashed line
    In another view I override this linetype with colour black
    The pattern changes to solid and the thickness changes to 1

    The default Wide linetype overridden to colour red changes the thickness to 1

    If I start from a Thin line and override this to colour , thickness or pattern it changes correct

    Build 20041213_2030 Rel7.0

    If you start from a solid, black, 1 unit thick line (Thin Line) you can override everything
    if you start from a dashed, colour more than 1 unit thick line if override 1 parameter the other change to solid, black, 1 unit thick line

    are you not experiencing this?

    Yes, following that process, I see the same result.

    That's a bug, Mr M.

    beegee

    That is/was a bug in the latest version of 6.1 as well. I found that out just last week when I was trying to change just the color of the lines and ended up loosing all the line weights and styles.
    Actually what I was trying to do was adjust the color of the halftone and found out by searching the archives that is is not possible to adjust the halftone color. arrgh!

    I find that I still have this problem with Revit 9.1 If I override only the colour, the lineweight changes to 1. Is this stil a bug?
