We are working on a multi part model.  We now wish to import the different views into one model to give an overall perspective of the sire.  However when this is done it brings the gridlines with it, these are visialbe in our working model and as such make the drawing untidy, is there a way of turning off these 'layers' from an imported view?????

In the view, go to VG then pick the imported categories tag.  Expand the tree by clicking on the + sign left of the import.  Each layer is now shown and you can turn them on / off.  I suggest you control this from your view template because if a view template is assigned, this will be reset when the view template is applied.

I agree with WWHUB- especially assigning a view template to this.


Layer control for this can also be achieved by two other means:

Visibility/Graphics Overides (VV) - Different Method

1.  Select this import

2.  Right-click

3.  Overide Graphics by Category

4.  This takes you to the 'VV - Imported Categories' tab and highlights the link for you.  Saves a little time if you have a lot of imports - considering Revit will only seem to list imports chronologically (date and time they were imported) and will not save an re-ordering you do.


Other method achieves the same result through a different tool (and probably quicker).

1,  Select your imported link

2.  On the editing bar select 'Query'.  This will allow you to select lines from your imported link and 'query' the layers.

3.  Select the linework you wish to hide.

4.  A new dialogue box will pop up giving you with selection parameters as well as options.

5.  Select 'Hide In View.'  I do NOT recommend deleting layers unless you are sure you want the gone for good.


The Query tool essentially does the same thing as the aforementioned methods.  Layers which are 'hidden in view' will actually turn 'off' in the VV - Imported Categories dialogue.  Likewise layers which are deleted can no longer be toggled on/off- since they have been deleted.
