Why are you trying to put a floor plan to a drafting view?

I think you want to use design options.  Then you can have two different model floor plans.

If these are really phases like exiting / new, then just use phases.  Otherwise, design options or just using a new workset might do what you want.  You do know that you can have multiple views - correct?  So PHASE ! is on a sheet, duplicate the phase I plan - call it phase II and add your components using worksets, phases or DO as appropriate.

OK - If you don't want to use the available tools in Revit, then to answer your orginal question, you have two options:

  1. Trace all of your linework in the view using lines then turn off all model elements.
  2. Use the freeze view option available in the add-ins.  Which exports the plan to CAD and imports it as a drafting view.  NOTE:  All of the dimensions are now just linework.  To change, you have to re-draft.

The request to "freeze" a view is something I have wanted, but is not an option in Revit.  Is the problem that you've got your view looking the way you want, but as you work in another view, things pop up in the first view?  That's revit, everything is part of the model.  If you are working in "Phases", which is based on TIME, then you should create phases as per the WIKI help.  I wrote the first paragraph BTW.  If you are proposing multiple variations of the model, then use design options, or just make copies of your project.  Whatever you do, do NOT try to use Revit in a way it is not designed to do, e.g. do not use phases just to get your graphics looking right.
