The help in Revit says how to do something, but fails to say the why.  How does one know to either just duplicate the view, or duplicate it with detailing or as a dependent.  Can someone explain the situations when you would want to do any of those.

  • Duplicate a view - I just want another model view of the same.... for other information - maybe another plan but with different view range.... or maybe to show furniture on but I don't want any 2D information.
  • Duplicate with detailing - maybe I have a 1/8" scale plan and again, I want a different scale and don't want to have to copy paste information from my overall plan - so I copy with detailing.  Once copied, the 2D information is never updated from the original copy.  You can add - subtract - change 2D elements independent in the original and copied view.
  • Dependent view - be very careful with these.  They can slow down you system.  They are seperate vignettes of another view.  Everything is the same as the original except for crop area.  Change an annotation in the main view and it changes in all dependent views.

Great explanation!  I noticed the help sections in revit dont explain WHEN or HOW you may want to use something.

So, are the first two then basically the same, except the one with detailing copies the existing detail, and the first one doesnt copy the existing detail?  In other words, if a view had no 2D detail, both options will end up with the same result.

duplicate is model only

duplicate with detailing is model and annotation objects

and works exactly as WWHub says

 

forget the word detailing and replace it with Annotation.
