How to change the color of the boundary (outline) of a family type?

 

I couldn’t find the option by which the boundary (outline) of a family type can be changed.

 

Thank you for the help,

 

Best

This is controlled by the object styles if you want to change how it is displayed in the entire project, and by your visibility graphics if you want to change how it is displayed in that view only.  Navigate to the Object Style or Visibility Graphics dialogue box and change your color for that item.

You can use a filter, and filter by type to assign a color top that particular family type. Andria Lynch, LEED AP BD+C Hinson Miller Kickirillo Architects PLLC 5300 Maryland Way, Suite 109 Brentwood. TN 37027 Phone: (615) 369-6020 Fax: (615) 369-6021
