Making up some View's

Is there are way for applying `INDEPENDANT' View Templates to views which have been created Dependantly.

We need to keep the Dependant views together in the pull down.

Say for example:


Basement small Power Layout

Basement Lighting Layout

and so on.


Any ideas!

The idea behind Dependant views is that they are identical in content, meaning you wouldn't be able to apply a different view template to 2 views that are dependant upon each other.  What you CAN do however is begin assigning your views to a discipline (through the view property dialogue box).  Then sort your Project Broswer by discipline (through the Project Browser proprty box).

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

As rktect says, dependent views are really just a multiple views of the same information so be careful with that term and how you use them.


We like to control where views are in our browser so we have added a shared parameter (we call it drawing type) that allows us to do that.   If you add a parameter like that then right click on your browser (Views), you can add new view types that will allow you to sort in any manner you choose.  In our system under this new parameter for hotel projects, we might have "Guestroom Plans", "Guestroom Elevations"  or maybe we choose to sort by room types and we will use "King", "Queen" ...  Because this is a shared parameter, it is also now in our view template and we set it accordingly.


Now we rarely have more than 10-15 views under any category.  Even detail views, which we do not assign a view template to, will have this field set so that they will be sub-sorted.
