Stacked Wall Preview

I'm using RS2013. My stacked walls are not displaying in preview when editing them. Why would this happen? Even the out of the box walls are nnot showing. The wall shows fine in the model. This is the first time I have has this happen. I tried scolling and panning the preview to look but to no avail.

You said you tried with scrolling and panning. Did you try "zooming" with the wheel inside the preview window?

Yes I tried the zoom. I tried to repair Revit 2013. I reinstalled Revit 2013. I tried using the out of the box stacked wall. I turned off Hardware acceleration. All my software is up to date. The stacked wall preview is just not working on my RS2013. The preview works on this machine in RS 2012. The basic wall works on 2013 just not the stacked wall.

Well, it must something in particular in that project or that wall type, because it works without any problem here. If the file is not large, maybe you could post it here, to see it.

I'm having the same problem. It worked well before an update. Now it's not working.

I was having the problem with Revit Structure 2013, update 2 as I recall. Then came my revit 2013 suite subscription upgrade. I uninstalled RS2013 and installed Revit Suite 2013. The problem went away. The problem is in the 2013 software not your hardware. The stack walls displayed correctly in my older Revit versions too. I would try uninstalling and reinstalling the most up-to-date Revit program you have. Be mindful of turning off virus protection and the like during installation.
