Symbols transparency and Patch articulation

Hello all,

I have many issues but at present this is a TB Harmony on a Mac 10.8.
I have established the library for the cutout character that I needed but when I render or even show in camera I can see through the legs and the arms. The torso and the head, shoes are all solid. but the waist, arms, legs and hands are see-through. Advanced Animation shows no direct difference between any of the symbol setups. Any insight WILL be greatly appreciated!

ALSO…Does one do the patch articulation on the symbol or on the Master Peg. I thought that if I could ever get the process to actually work (cutting without grabbing too much, etc) I’d get one patch and apply it universally, in that I only need two cuts.
