in order to see the roof ridge lines, i have to extend the vie range of the elevaiton quite a bit.

when i do that, the elevation picks up everything inside the building, and on the opposite side of the building.

so i've been selecting items and hiding in view by element.

some floors i want to see, others i don't.

wome windows i want to see, others i don't.

so the elevations are acting like sections.

any recommendations?

thanks!

I don't undestand why you say the elevation acts like a section - no way it can really do that unless your elevation cut line goes through the building.

We always modeled with the exterior walls, windows, doors and roof in a workset called shell.  By ony having that workset on, we did not have to hide interior items.  We did oly pull the view range as deep as required to show what would be see in that view but not the opposide side.

Isn't an elevation really a section that is cut outside of the building?  Everything in the model that is within the view range will show up in that view.  As WWHub said, you can use worksets to control elements and more quickly hide those in views like this.  View template could do some of that as well if things can be hidden by category.  But if you want to selectively hide some elements (i.e. windows) but still see others, you're probably gonna have to manually do that per view.
