Dear experts,

what's the best way to override in view the grids of a linked model without using filters? Why does VV/ Links / Custom / Annotations /Custom not work?

Revit 2017.

Thank you.

Thanks.

But how to override them? Say, I want to have my link's grids to be thick, red and of solid line pattern?

I am lost here.  Why would you even want the linked fil's grids on?  Without you saying otherwise, we would all think your grids are there and no need for the linked grids.  If these are different grids than yours because they are not in the same building, then you should say so.

hi Glen,

You could edit the Type Properties of the grid family in your link? I don't think you can make them thick but you can make them red and solid lined.

Thanks again. I thought about something like that -- to override the grids' type properties.

But our consultants sometimes change their model location (maybe they don't use our shared coordinates correctly), and i have to relocate their model. I i override the grid properties, they  will be the original ones after i update their model.

I just want to have our grids as thety are, and their grids red.

IFor now, i do opposite -- override our grids and keep their grids (and levels) as they are.

I think to override their levels and grids would be more straightforward.
