Hello problem solvers,
I am creating my cross sections in a separate file drawing from my main file using xref and data shortcuts. The sample lines are in place and I'm using a conditional assembly. In short, it's looking for a feature line placed at the back of the driveway aprons along the street. If is see the feature line, it displays the driveway parts of the assembly. If not found, it displays full curb parts.
Here's the problem. two of my five driveways are not correctly displayed, but in different ways. One displays the full lane sub-assembly and the other displays the entire full curb assembly. the remaining tree driveways display perfectly.
Here's the baffling aspect: I dropped two sample lines in the main drawing at these two driveways and they are displaying perfectly.

Do you have a Sample Line at the exact companion Corridor Frequency station for these driveways in question?
IE: 5+03.09 SL and 5+03.09 Corr Frequency.
Jay, the location started out the same but I have since tried sliding the sample line to other locations within the driveway as well as creating new sample lines at other stations within the driveway. No luck.
Tim, I had not thought to try a completely different assembly at these two drives. I'll give that a shot and see where it gets me. I have used this same assembly within multiple other dwg's with great success so this situation is a mystery.
Thanks too for the kudos on my process. Conditionals make transitions in your corridor a breeze (once you learn how they work). I use them mainly for driveways but also retaining walls, railings, and ped drops. The beauty is that all these options can be created into one conditional assembly.
Problem solved! All my driveways look like driveways. Tim, instead of trying a different assembly, I took the comment from your kudos about avoiding multiple regions at each driveway and I split the region around the driveway. Not sure why that makes a difference - I used the same assembly, same targets and widths as before but now it works in both the main dwg and the cross section dwg. So thanks!
