I have a pipe network and a profile for it. Some of the structures have 2 inlet pipes. The pipe system more of less goes down a road, so every now and then there is a cross pipe into a structure. I have masking turned on under the structure style->profile setting. I want to see the cross pipe, so I found on here that all I need to do is under structure style->view direction (profile)->make Structure Pipe Outlines visible. I did that and still no cross pipe shows up. If I turn the masking off it is there. I must be missing a setting or something. Anybody have an idea what it could be?

Do you have ALL the pipes in the network in that one profile view? Or just the ones along the alignment? (i.e. the main trunk line.) If you have all of the pipes, you need to delete from the profile view the intersecting laterals . In that way the structures will be able to show the intersecting pipes as ellipses.
i have a style set just for the xing pipes and i set that as a override in the profile properties. as far as the masking it has to be turned off to show the xing pipes.
