Visibility Graphics Issues and DWG Imports in Families

I worked through an issue this morning with a fellow RevitForum member. He was trying to determine why desks in the architect's model would not show up in one of his views, using Revit MEP. It turns out that one of the earlier replies in the thread offered part of the solution.

The desk family involved wasn't made of native Revit elements. It was only imported DWG elements. In the view that wouldn't show the desk the view's Visibility/Graphics settings were being controlled by a view template and it had the Imported Categories setting for Imports in Families un-checked. Just one or many things we need to track down when Thing's Go Missing.
