Why is it that whenever I create a wall section or detail section the markers show up in all views?  Is there a way to control which views these markers show up in?  For instance I do not want my wall section markers to show up on my building elevations.  It seems unnecessary and more than a bit tedious to have to search through all of my views and hide markers that shouldn't be showing up, especially when these views aren't even "cutting" through the detail.

There are some options, although I would think that if Revit did not display the section markers in new views there would be posts sssaying that they have to switch on the section in multiple views.

You can hide the section markers in views that have a scale 'courser than' to control some of the views.  You will probably find the new sections don't display in the site plan because of this.

Your best option is to use View Tewmplates.  Set up an elevation to display as you wish, with section markers switched off (in VG, not 'Hide in View) and then create a view template to apply to all the other elevations. 

If you don't want to see section markers in elevations, they should be switched off in VG, I suspect that you're hiding them in the view, and then you'll have to switch off each one each time.

That works well...if you want ALL section markers gone from the view.My headaches occur when I need other markers, just not the new one. For example, duplicated view to create a supplemental drawing...now i have overlapping markers. Another? I don't want a wall section from the front of my building showing up on my rear elevation...I've confused more than one contractor when that happens.

 

As you mentioned, though, I wouldn't want Revit to do it the other way. This is the lesser of two evils.

 

My wishlist item? A context menu command called "Hide In All Views", then I can unhide in the views I need it in. It's a case-by-case determination to choose the best approach based on whether it's faster to hide the unwanted ones or unhide the wanted ones...will be happy when/if they add that!

I would also like the option of "Hide in all views".  Also helpful would be a way to turn off wall sections and detail sections independantly of building sections.  I want to show building section markers on building elevations, but I do not for instance want to see a detail marker for something inside the building.  It even shows sections on the opposite side of the building.  Now everytime I want to cut a new section I have to open up all of my views to make sure the marker isn't showing where it doesn't make any sense.

I am still having this same issue. When I create a dependent view for a one-off revision sheet, it shows the section marker overlapping all of the other ones. With recent updates in Revit since these last posts, has there been any update in this? It is a hugh pain to have to hunt down all instances of section cuts and hide them where they aren't wanted.

I'm not sure I understand your problem.  In Revit, all sections cuts will show up in all views where they occur unless you specify otherwise.  This is one of the great things about Revit.  How do you specify when not to show?

  1. Set the "Hide in scales coarser than"
  2. Turn off all section cuts in VG of a view (best using view templates)
  3. Use a filter to turn off building or wall sections (type filter)
  4. Assign a parameter to element (project parameter) then create a view filter to turn elements with that parameter off.

Yes, I understand the great benefit of Revit tracking all changes in all views, but it would be extremely helpful - as mentioned in a previous comment in this thread - if you could simply check a box for a specific section cut/elevation marker/etc. to only show up in ONE view from the outset, instead of chasing it through with filters. If you want an existing section cut to show up in many different views, and then want to duplicate it for a separate sheet but don't want that duplicate to show up anywhere, it is an extremely time-consuming and trying process.

I really think the process as is is correct.  This just demands that you set up some of your own rules for Revit.  For instance, in our template, we assigned  a project parameter to all categories named "DO NOT SCHEDULE".   In our schedules, we use this field to filter out any element that has an 'X' in that parameter.  You could also add a different letter and use that as a filter for section cuts ... or whatever.  You could set this up in your template and have it always available.

Go to your Visability Graphics, go under the Filters Tab and Create a new Filter. For me i created "Installation". We name all of our views depending on Discipline. For example or architectural views begins with a View Name -  A, or mechanical Views begins with View Name - M. etc.

 

Under my Installation Filter i am creating, I only want View Names that begin with ER.

I created "Installation"

Under Categories, i only check marked "Elevations"

Under Filter Rules...

Filter by: View Name     Does not begin with     ER

 

back to Visbility Graphics, Under Filter, ADD Installation, and uncheck mark the box under "Visibility".

Now all views you want shown in your plan will be shown there. Remember to do that to your other plan views. You will need to create filters applicable to your other plans, similar process.What i said above is an example of what i did on my project, modify to yours.
