Here is a good one....

Working on a campus project, which has an Annotative Model (for sheets & details), this annotative model has 4 building models linked in as Overlay, one of these building (lets call this building 1) models has a smaller portion of it as a Nested attached Link. This nested model has been created for mock up (lets call it Mockup) purposes. 

When i am in the annotative model i would like to turn the grids off of the Nested attached "Mockup" model on a global scale. I tried managing links in the "Building 1" model and turning the shared levels and grids of the "Mockup" model off then reloading it. doesnt work. what i am able to do is set the Nested link option in the Visibility Graphics to Parent link which then i turn Grids off in the annotative category of Revit Links "Bulding 1" but this is view specific and it will get insane if i try and control this via view templates. 

Does anyone have an idea on turning grids off from a nested attached linked model, in the main model?

Why so contorted???? 

You want to control a category in a linked view within a linked view?  Did I understand that? .... I just tested this and I don't see a way to do that.


I don't understand why you did this.  Seems there is an easier way.

hi bruff730

is the worksharing options applicable to your scenario? if yes, hope this will give you idea.

create grids.rvt

create mockup.rvt and link the grids.rvt as overlay for your modelling reference.

create building1.rvt and enable worksharing. link as attachment both grids.rvt and mockup.rvt.  then select grids.rvt and create a workset specifically for grids.rvt named mockup_grid.

create the annotative.rvt and link as overlay the building1.rvt. Go to Manage links/select the building1.rvt and manage worksets, select mockup_grid workset and on/off to play around the grids globally and not view specific.
