I have been bothered by this for a while. When try to filter out view tags by their related sheet number, all worked very well only exept elevations. when I define a filter for elevation, I define it by "sheet number", and by 'sheet number begin with'. after I apply this to the view, only the triangle was filtered out, the square sheet tag is still there. I use the same definition to filter out sections, callout, they work fine. Why for elevation, it doesn't work? I used to think this is a bug, I have noticed this for two versions, no any improvement. Did I miss something here?

You can filter elevations if you make an elevation "type" then in filter set the filter to that type.

Example:  Select Elevation Tag go to edit types,  duplicate it rename it elevations A1.0

 

Go to filter, create filter Sheet A1.0 and assign it to elevations and then filter  under (family and type) then select elevations A1.0

 

You will need to assign all your elevations to  new types that pertains to what sheets you want them on.  Example (elevations to show on sheet a 4.0, make an elevation type sheet a4.0)Once you have assigned all your elevations to new types based off sheet name. Go to sheet A1.0 then hit VV or object styles go to filters and add all your elevation filters turn the visibility off for all the elevations you dont want on. 

 

The idea is you segregate the elevations by making new types and use the filters to decide which types will show on what sheets.

In our office we have interior elevation tags that are for enlarged plans but kept showing in our 1/8" scale plans as well and created a mess.  Using the method I suggested We created a new elevation type called Interior elevation - enlarged plans.  Once we assigned it to that type we then applied a filter to turn them off.  We then applied the filter to our view templates and we applied the filter then unchecked visability.  All the sheets with that view template turned them off and continue to do so upon creation. 

 

Unfortunitly the hide at scales courser than only hides the arrows not the tag so we had to go this direction.  But once we have assigned an elevation to that type GG.
