Is it possible to set a graphic override to display the pinned elements in a model? If so, whereis it set? I am trying to set this as a notifiaction to myself what walls have not been pinned as I start a new model.

 

Revit 2013

 

Thanks.

Yes, but could I suggest an alternative?

Why not just have a filter that turns the pinned walls (or elements) green (or blue, red..e.tc..)

Rather than leaving only the pinned walls/elements on, leave them on and turn them an easily readible color for other users to see.  Cryingassuming you're on a team).?.?

 

Just a thought.  But yes, its possible.

This would be great.  I am going thru the filter set up now.  Honestly we do not use filters much, so they are not something I knew how to set up.

 

I do not have pinned element as a filter type.  Do you have to make that a parameter first?

Yes, you'll need a filter-type parameter, and then a specific parameter in the element you want.  So for the example I used, it was under the checkbox for Walls.

Again, you'd need to make this parameter active for other elements such as doors, windows...etc... but it is possible.

THE TRICK is to remember to check the box after pinning the object.  It doesn't automatically know that once you pin an object, that it should checkbox itself.

So there is a disconnect of information that will need to be coordinated.  Pretty awesome when it does work though, right?

Good luck!
