Issue:

you load family for use in a project and after placing an instance of the family you notice that certain components of the family do not show up in certain view directions:

Turn on the view directions for which you would like component to be visible when loaded into a project:

 Save the family and reload it into your project overwriting the existing family. The components that were not visible will now be visible:
