Graphic override ignores stairs

Mike96

I have set a graphic override rule which takes all elements that contain brick material and swaps their cut fills into another kind of brick material (which has different fill orientation, but is based on the same fill type).
The problem appears on the section view where stairs' appearance remains unaffected, even though the section cuts through the stairs, so they satisfy the criteria.


I thought, OK, maybe I should also add a 2D rule to swap all "cegła licówka" (that's the brick type) fills into "cegła zwykła" fills.


No success by now. Please see the screenshot of my first override setting or inspect my attached model - maybe someone will figure this out? I need the cut stairs too look like the rest of cut surfaces, and thery are all made of the same material.

It is because there is no criteria for building material when you have stair as an element type.

You will have to filter by a different criteria for stairs. For example Element id,..

With graphic overrides, you always overwrite the entire element. Stairs can have multiple buildingmaterials so unfortunately you cannot use the buildingmaterial as a criteria.
