Error by creating a new fill symbol (2 layers) in the style manager

Hello everybody.

I have been trying to create a new fill symbol in the style manager in ArcMap 10.3 that consists of 2 layers (multilayer). When I want to use this new symbol for a shape-file (polygon), the whole data frame appears in this symbology and not just the selected polygon layer. If the symbol constists just of 1 layer everything functions well. I have also tried to lock up/unlock each of the layers but this didn´t help. My purpose is to create a symbol for buildings (1 layer: the color, 2 layer: line fill).

Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks for your help.
