Steel Doesn't Conform to Object Styles

If you find that structural framing elements fail to appear according to their object style settings you need to check the view range of the view. In order for these elements to use their category or sub-category assignments they must be part of (within) the Primary Range of a view's View Range settings.


Adjust the Bottom of the Primary Range so that it intersects or is below the structural framing and you'll find the object style assignments "return".


Keep in mind you may get slightly different behavior between RST and RAC and whether or not you are using an Architectural or Structural discipline assignment.
