When I manually put wires on my plans, they gap when they cross over detail lines from the background. It is usually casework, furniture, etc. that the Architect has made with detail lines. How do I get this to stop?

Solved! by tsk001. See the answer in context.
I think I found a solution:
In the Electrical Settings under Hidden Lines - uncheck draw MEP hidden lines and change line style to thin lines.
I do not believe that there is any direct way to stop without either disable the wire gaps entirely or by not showing the architect's Detail Lines. MEP Models are commonly created as separate Revit Project Files with the Architectural file Linked, which would also evade this issue.
Check the following:
1. Is the architectual elements modeled in the same file, or it linked in? If linked in, make sure that the Revit link is set to "Underlay" in visibility graphics.
2. Is the view you're drawing your wires in an "Electrical" discipline view or is it "Coordination"? Make sure it's "Electrical"
3. If it's ALL in the same model... well... not sure if I can help you there since I have no experience modeling MEP elements side-by-side with Architectual elements
1. Revit link is set to underlay.
2. Wires are drawn in Electrical disipline.
This is baffleing me. All my lighting sheets look great, the lines do not break when they cross an architectural detail line.
It is only on my electrical sheets. It has to be a setting that differs between my lighting and electrical templates.
