MS CE Update 14 - How to manage draw order with references and shape fill

Hi

I have a filled shape in a nested reference (ref. 1.1) that hide linework in another nested reference (ref 1.2) (1 level of nesting).

I have tried changing element and level priority but still the fill shows above the lines. The reference priority cannot be changed because of nesting.

I have also tried changing the update sequence in the file attaching directly the references (ref 1) and it does not seem to have changed a thing.

Has anyone else had this issue? What should I try next?

Thanks.

    The quickest solution turn off the ref in the nest for the filled shape exref.. then attach the filled shape exref  as a single xref ontop now in the ref manager sequence  set it to the first  xref ie  slot 1 at the top of the list .. then everything else after it   so it gets painted first then everything else is painted on top.. as the way the printer would need to lay it down.. on paper.. not the most inutitive tool but when you think of it as  printing order  its a bit easier.. other drafter use transparencey  but then it  mucks up the way colours look  and you can't  make the legend  look the same becaue  stuff shines thru change the colours like air photos .. so I put 2d  filled shape exrefs  underneath all the other exrefs  and I dont put it a nest  as its hard to control later.. or rebuild  your  nest so filled shapes is first  .. still may not work in all situations...
