I would like the ability to add different styles to reference planes (maybe incorporate with Line Styles).

Primarily I would like to be able to change to color of specific reference planes to make them visually stand out. But with that we should also be able to change the line style, weight, etc. either per instance, via types, or with a style group.

under object styles you can change the color, wt and style of your reference planes.

Right you can change the style of ALL of the reference planes, but I want to control individual or groups of reference planes, so some can be green, some could blue, Some could have dot dot dash line style and another could just have dot - dot line style. 

 I'm working on a large building with a lot of wall jogs and i'm finding there are far too many reference planes to keep track of.

you can name your planes, that is how i keep track of mine.  i tried overriding the colors by element and it does not give all the options you get when you select say a regular line.  so i don't think you manipulate them the way you can other objects.  naming your planes is prob your best bet.

Some people use way too many reference planes & reference lines ... and they don't delete them when they are no longer useful.  Other than levels and grids, I think you can get by with just a few other permanent reference planes. 

 

Revit is great because you have temporary dimensions that most times, you can just place items.  Why waste time with reference planes?

Most of our reference lines are used to line up a Rigid insulation layer for exterior walls, Our client was deciding between a few different wall systems (all the way up to a week before permit set) and we were using pinned ref. planes to make sure our footprint didn't grow when changes were made. 

I'd agree there are probably more ref. planes than we need. and part of that is due to communication within the office. I know I don't want to delete a ref. plane that was made by someone else which might be aligned/locked for something I was unaware of. I try to delete temporary ref. planes that I make as I go. But when you have a couple of people collaborating on a model its hard to keep cleaning up after them.

In Object Styles dialogue, you can create a new sub-category benieth the reference plane category,,, set you color there, then you can change the categoy of the plane in the preference panel
