Ceiling Break Lines
Need help my ceiling break lines don't show up on my 1/4" annotation set, but they show up on my roof annotation set, and my electrical annotation set, and all other annotation sets, there is no + sign next to it on any of them but it is checked on all of them, call Chief tech support but no help, has this happened to anyone else and could someone help me,

I think you will find that there never is a + sign next to it in the used column in any anno set.
Just turn on the display column in the 1/4" anno set.

Andy it is turned on there, and in all the other displays I will send to techsupport to see what they say

Once in a while, I find a layer that has different names in different layer sets. I would create a copy of your layer set that your ceiling break lines won't display, & then start turning layers on/off until you figure out what the layer name is in that layer set. You will get a "+" sign for that layer if you have added something to that layer yourself. Also, if a selection stays selected when changing layer sets, you could draw a line on the Ceiling Break Lines layer, select it & then change layer sets & see the layer name there. Once you find the problem, get into Layer Display Options(LDO)/ Modify All Layer Sets & correct the name.
Annotation sets have nothing to do w/ layer display issues, other than controlling what layer set displays when a particular anno set is activated. It's all done in the LDO. Why would you go to Anno Sets 1st?

Ed thanks for the reply, I didn't go to layer sets first I went to display options and when that was checked and after doing other work on different annotation sets I started checking both when that set was on I check the display options to make sure it was on in that annotation set also so that it was not turned off for some reason, so when I went to the different annotation sets I always check my display options to see, I will try your other ideas in a little while

A layer is not On/Off in an Anno Set. It's On/Off in a Layer Set.
Forget Anno Sets for this issue; they're irrelevant.
& all changes can be done thru the LDO; shouldn't have to open/close it multiple times.
You can send me the plan & I'll have it fixed in minutes, if what I suspect is indeed the problem; glad to do it.
Either way, you'll know soon.

Ed file on its way to you, thanks for the help

All fixed. Exactly what I thought it was.
It was the Walls, Beams layer.
Your "Ceiling Break Lines" layer appears to be a user added layer.
I deleted that layer & then renamed the Walls, Beams layer.
You no longer have a layer named Walls, Beams. Chief X5 doesn't have a layer by that name anymore.
It's Ceiling Break Lines.
