I have googled and searched but, so far, have not stumbled onto an explanation of how to do that in Revit 2015.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

We need more information.  What are you breaking up?  You can use worksets and link files.  If the plan is already started you will have to copy out what you want to a new file, this may end up being a pain depending on how much is done already.

  1. Create an overall plan at the correct scale.   This will have all annotations and will be 1/2 your building eventually.
  2. Place your MATCH-LINE
  3. Set up the crop region for this first plan.
  4. Create a dependent view of this first plan and set the crop region for the second half. (Make sure the crops overlap.)
  5. Now place these views on seperate sheets.
  6. Add a view reference at the matchline to point to each sheet.

Is it possible to have the main view be a smaller scale and the dependent views that are matchlined be at a larger scale and have all changes created on the main view show up in the dependents?

Short answer NO.

 

The overall view has everything in it and there is only one dependent view - not two.   The overall (let's say left side) and dependent view (let's say right side) have to be the correct scale because they are sheeted.  You can move annotative elements in either view to adjust them at the match-line.  But initially, you want to work with the view not cropped so dimensions can cross the match-line.

 

You need to work with this a little to understand the concept .... AND it works very, very well!
