Override Objects between a Primary and Dependent View - The Revit Clinic

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/05/override-objects-between-a-primary-and-dependent-view.html


A dependent view will match the majority of properties from the primary view. There are a few exceptions should you need to override elements between the views which I have organized below:

Hide in View > Elements

You can hide both annotation and model elements in one of the views using the Hide in View > Elements option. If you use the Hide in View > Category, the object category will not be visible in both views.

Override Graphics in View > Elements

Similar to above you can override the graphics of individual elements in one view only. Simply highlight the element[s] > right-click > Override Graphics in View > By Element.

View Filters

While view filters stay aligned between a primary and dependent view by default, you can selectively override the filter override for objects in one of the views.

Select an object you wish to modify from the view filter in the desired view > right-click > Override Graphics in View > By Element.

You can see the categories being controlled with the view filter as they will list . While a view filter is active, if you set any of these to No Override the View Filter will still control the appearance. However you can override the display as needed, which will take precedence over the view filter.

Other View Properties...

For the full list of object categories that are inherited and can vary between a dependent and primary view, I have included the Help documentation link below:
