Fill on top of stairs in elevation

Hi All:

 

I am having an issue where, in elevation only, a stair is covered by what appears to be a fill of some sort. It shows up in my new elevations, but not in my existing (this is a remodel and I'm using the renovation filter). It also does not show up when I cut a section through the same plane as the elevation. I imagine this is a headroom plane or some graphic override but I cannot for the life of me figure it out.

 

This "fill" also sometimes appears in 3D as a ghosted box, but I can't seem to replicate that right now...

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Phil

One thing to check is Model View Options (MVO) > Stair Options > Headroom.

 

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

David:

 

That's exactly what it was - thank you so much. I just couldn't figure it out!

 

Did my operating system not show up within my post? I thought it did so automatically, but I'll be asure to add it going forward.

 

Best,

 

Phil

Phil:

 

Good to know that worked.

 

In addition to your operating system, your version of ArchiCAD and its country (features and libraries will vary), and information about your computer could be helpful in answering your questions.
