Partial Structure Display Settings: Effect on Elements
Regardless of which Partial Display option is in effect, zones are not affected: zones that extend to an “Inner Edge” are calculated to include the “finish” component of a surrounding structure, even if the finishes are hidden according to the current Partial Structure Display Setting.
If you have assigned a Cover Fill to any composite or complex element (this might be a Roof, Slab, or Mesh), then the Cover Fill will appear regardless of the Partial Display option that is in effect.
Note: Cover Fills can use Graphic Overrides.
Each Partial Display mode has its own set of dimensions: you can have a set of dimensions in your Core Only view, and other sets of dimensions in your Entire Model and Without Finishes views. If you switch between Partial Structure Display settings, the dimensions associated with the earlier Display setting will not be visible. To see the Dimensions again, switch back to the Partial Structure Display setting in which the Dimensions were placed.
If you now switch the display setting to Entire Model, the dimension shown in Core Only disappears, and the other dimension - the one previously created with the Entire Model display setting - appears.
You can copy-paste dimensioned elements between two views whose Partial Structure Display settings are dissimilar. However, if you try to paste dimensioned elements that do NOT appear in the given Partial Structure display, those dimensions will be lost after you paste.
