Whenever I apply a View Template to Dependent 2 in the attached pic, it updates Dependent 1 and the main view as well and vice versa.

I have seen a similar Project Browser organization where one did not effect the other, even though they appeared as dependents.

How can I achieve this?

This is answered very clearly in your HELP: http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2014/ENU/?guid=GUID-EF8CCDA0-9946-49FA-B7AB-2B94470525D2

 

Scroll down and read this section:

Dependent Views and View Properties

A dependent view inherits view properties and view-specific elements from the primary view. Synchrony is kept between the primary view and dependent views for the following view properties:

I understand Dependent Views, but how was this achieved? (see attached)

The (EXPORT)(SHEET)and (WORK) all appear to be dependent views, but "Convert to independent view" is grayed out when I right-click.

Furthermore, I am able to apply a different View Template to each of them separately.

Whenever I attempt to make my dependent views independent, it moves the view to the main category. This will get cluttered and confusing as the project progresses.

Helloooooo.......

You wrote initially: "...Whenever I apply a View Template to Dependent 2 in the attached pic, it updates Dependent 1 and the main view as well and vice versa...."

And now you write: "....I am able to apply a different View Template to each of them separately...."  Do you really think so?  I have not tried this above 2014 but I don't think so.  I bet you can apply it to any of them but they all change .... dependently!

 

It can't be both ways and as far as I know, it hasn't changed up through 2015.   If you apply a view template, it is applied to all dependend views and the primary just as you initially were complaining about.

 

Independend views should never nest under a view like a dependent view does.   Why would you want that?

My apologies about being confusing.

The 2nd pic I posted was from the Architect's model. They seem to defy the laws of Revit by making their (what looks like) dependent views as independent. This is what I want to achieve. 

I have emailed them the question, but they have left for the day so hopefully I will find out tomorrow. The suspense is killing me Winking

Normally I would agree, but this project has 8 buildings with multiple levels. Project organization is going to be tricky.

Did you know you can set up your browser with sub folders?

 

You want to do the following in your template for future and in your current project since you have already started.

 

Add a new shared parameter to your shared parameter file.  We called ours simply 'View Sort'.   Under the manage tab/project parameters - assign that shared parameter to views.   Now set up your browser sort to sort your views using that parameter.  AND!!! This parameter is now available in all of your views and view templates.  So assign it!   For instance in our hotels, we have a folder called Guestroom Elevations ... one for the stairs -plans/sections details... likewise for Public Space items.... Whatever fits your work.

I must be getting better at Revit because I was able to do what you wrote.

It needs some tweaking, but it worked.

Thanks, WWHub.

There is so much to this program and so many possibilities.   Always look first in your HELP using simple one word searches.  There is a lot of useful information there.  Keep an open mind.  Most times, you create your own problems because of your process.  It's sometimes hard to find where that problem is but blaming the program doesn't solve it.  Hopefully you work in an office where people talk and share their experiences so you all advance.  This site also works that way if you take the time to study the posts and their answers. 

 

We have been using Revit for a long time now but rarely is their a day that I don't learn something new.  Most learning occurs from questions from my staff or users here.   I keep clips of items in multiple emails that I eventually send out to staff.

I heard back from the Architect. They organized their browser just as you described with browser organization WWHub. 

Mystery solved. Thanks again.
