Segmented Column in Plan

TracyGA

I was using the segmented column in my project and noticed that all of my column line pens were being overridden to a single pen rather than the pens I've set up in the complex profile.  If I remove the various segments in the column the line weights of the specific profile show up correctly.  Is this a glitch on version 25 or does it have something to do with the new structural options in v25 (or other)?

It may be a planned limitation imposed by the segmenting process to simplify the column linework and a column uses the values set in the Floor Plan & Section settings for 3D and elevation views but still uses the pens in the complex profile definition for section cuts.

I don't think that is the case.  Even if I change the segmented column to use just 2 segments without complex profiles (just a concrete building material), it overrides the color, but I know that they are being cut.  If I remove the segments but keep the column at the same overall height, it cuts correctly.

Tracy, can you show a few screenshots:

1. How the Profile looks in the Profile Editor.

2. How it looks on the Floor Plan.

3. What are the settings in the "Floor Plan & Section" page of the Column Settings Dialog.
