I am trying to set up a filter to apply to wall sweeps (rubber bases in particular).  Once applied, I would then use view templates to hide all of them in every view except interior elevations and sections.  Is there a way to get the filters to apply to objects when the Wall Sweep Category is not listed in the filter dialogue?  I suppose I could set up a workset for this task, but I would prefer not to do it this way.  Maybe someone else has a better way entirely?

Thank you in advance.

If your sweep is part of the wall, you will not be able to control it... one of Revit's problems.

There's another way but it could be somewhat tedious depending on how many wall sweeps you have. I have found if I add a parameter to my project and then select all categories. I can then use it for anything. Example, we had a project with many flat screen tvs and by using the project parameter I typed in 42"TV, then I created a filter from the project parameter that contains 42"TV. From there I was able to add the fitler to my views I didn't want to see the tv's and the one view I wanted to see them I was able to half tone everything but the tv's.

I've also found many more other uses for the project parameter, very useful tool. 

Hope this helps

ebtaylor - that process works for almost evrything but wall sweeps embedded in a wall definition are different.  They are part of the wall.
