Using Revit 2020 

Our company requires door and frame elevations that correspond to the door schedule. I do this by creating elevations (interior and exterior) of the glazing and frame types that I need to show. (see attached image) after creating the elevation, I then "hide in view" what ever I do not want visible. (the doors, the walls, ceilings, floors, etc. This works and looks great until any change is made to the wall that hosts the glass elevation I created, then all the hidden elements re-appear. Its very frustrating and I am forced to make this my very last sheet created in my set because I have to constantly babysit and revisit this sheet. Is there any way to "lock" these views and stop the hidden elements from re-appearing?

My door sheet is similar to yours but I don't have your problems. 

  • First, I don't do interior and exterior elevations. 
  • Second, I only use elevations for CW windows/doors, not standard doors and windows. 
  • Third, my CW elevations (created on a non placed view - I use window tags to identify) have an applied template that turns off everything but the CW (Walls). 
  • Finaaly, the view depth is only the thickness of the CW and it's ends are close to the ends of the CW, same for the view height.  Now, the only item hidden in view is the wall the CW is embedded in.
