Good day everyone! I am relatively new to Revit 2013 and my employer prefers it.  I have worked in CAD systems before so I am having some challenges with Revit. However, so far I am amazed at it's versatility.  This may seem quite academic to all of you but I am trying to figure out how to turn off dimension visibility when the object (window) visibility is set to off.  When I turn visibility off (via VV) for my windows the dimensions remain displayed???  In previous experiences, not displaying an object would also effect the visibility of the associated dimension.  I have looked through various forums and the only answer given to someone who experienced the same thing was that it is impossible.  The dimensions are not temporary.  I just started this residential project and I would love to get pass this seemingly simple issue. Thanks in advance.

If the window is hidden or if the category is turned off in VG (Not VV), then the dimension will not be there.  If there is a dimension there, then something else is there and you dimensioned to that.  Did you pay attention to what you were dimensioning to?  Revit tells you while dimensioning.

To WWHub...thanks a bunch for the fresh eyes.  I went back to check and just as you suspected, I had the dim attached to a wall rather than the window.  After I made the correction, everything was fine.  I do have a question regarding one of your comments.  You said VG and not VV...but when I launch VG it is the same as VV??  Am I missing something here?  Al the tabs are the same in each.  BTW I am using Revit 2013 if that makes any diff.

All in all after using this proggy (by default) for only 6 months I am sold on it's simple approach to CAD environment and how it compares to Autocad and the likes.  I still go to my Acad to try and solve some issues I am encountering in Revit and then try and find the Revit path to solving.  I hope to get away from this process soon as it is too time consuming.  Thanks again for your help.

It has 2 short cuts...VG or VV, both launches the same.
