Inconsistent Foundation Displays

Let's look at the following example to illustrate a common scenario I see with foundation displays:

Foundation Display_01
Let's say you go into Object Styles or Visibility/Graphics and apply some graphical changes to the Structural Foundations category, such that the line weight is 4 and the pattern is Dashed:

Foundation Display_02
You exit the dialog and notice some of the foundations changed, and some didn't:
Foundation Display_03
A common reason for this is related to the View Range of the view. If your foundations are below the Bottom and within the View Depth they will display according to the line style, rather than through the Structural Foundations Category. An easy test for this is to just go to Manage > Additional Settings > Line Styles, and change the line style to something you'll see right away:
Foundation Display_04
Foundation Display_05
I hope this helps explain why this scenario might occur so you can understand how to approach it!
