I have to manually hide a linked model in some of my views (I need to see it in other views that have the same view template and don't want to have duplicate view templates just for this), but when I make any adjustments to the view template settings, even ones that don't directly effect the linked model, it reappears. I haven't had issues with elements reappearing after manually hiding them before.  It doesn't seem to have an affect but I'm also trying to use a linked view, but I have the issue when setting the linked model By Host View as well.

Change your view template to exclude control of the link.

We have a lot of linked models on this projects and a lot of views with this template (Floorplan Views).  Going view by view for all the changes we make to the visibility and graphics of the linked models seems too tedius.  

I can't exclude control of just one of the links right? Its all the revit links or none of them correct?

I'm just not sure why it would unhide an element I have selected and said hide in view....

If the views already have the linked model set correctly, removing the control of the link in the template will not affect them.

I rally don't understand why youare resistant to having a different template for this.

 

Some users have not yet learned a better process.   I encourage our users to never model from a sheeted view.   The sheeted view is set up correctly and the only reason to edit it is to change/add 2D elements like dimensions, notes, callouts.  Do all of your model editing from a designated working view where you can change visibility at will.  We actually have designated working views per user with their name attached.

The reason I'm so resistant at this point in time is because we constantly need to adjust the categories from the consultants models.  For instance say our electrical engineer just added outlets and we don't want to see them.  I would have to go to all my views then and adjust the visibility of that category.  If we were way later in the process I would agree with you that it would be okay to exclude the revit links from the view template.

We follow a similar process with user views and documentation views, but this issue is with the documentation view.  I'm trying not to be overly wordy, but to be more specific, we have our site model linked in to our building model, and on our level 1 floorplan we want to show the site plan (Using linked view from site model).  However then we see the linked view of the site model on all our upper floorplans as well because its has the same view template and the linked view retains its view range properties.  So I was just trying to manually hide the linked site model in those views, but it reappears if we have to make any changes to the view template.

I think you need to adjust your process.   I understand why your first floor may have a deeper depth of view to see your site but your upper floors should not.  Therefore - different view template.   And, your site should be linked by workset with that workset turned off in ujpper plans.

 

BTW - Why linked linked site view on the first floor?   The linked model should show correctly.

We've gone back and forth on the whole process since there are a lot of different parts to this whole thing. We have our linked models on different worksets for the reason you described. I think our best option forward right now is to exclude the worksets from the view template, as you were suggesting earlier with the revit models, however the visibility of the worksets is a lot less likely to change at this point.

The reason we are using a linked view from the site model is because we are linking in CAD plans (Civil and Landscape) and this way I can control the visibility of them across multiple models/views (Mulitple Overall Site Plans, Enlarged Site Plans. Overall Floorplans, and Enlarged Floorplans) in one place.

Any advice on better logic is very welcomed.  Thank you for your responses.
