I've seen the previous posts and suggestions on keyplans and different ways to create them.  Creating multiple dependent views does not seem the way to go as people stated becasue then you have many views to deal with. 

I have created a legend view but the issue I am having here is when I go to hide the element of the keyplan I want to hide on any given sheet, these are then changed on the other sheets, which is not the reaction one would want. 

Are there additional suggestions or resolutions people have to creating a key plan?

We have done this before with a detail view.  First we wold outline our building, and hatch the side you are refering to.  Then duplicate the view and hatch the other side.  The somewhat cumbersome part of this technique is that in order to get your detail on many different sheets, we would have to duplicate a new view for each use. 

This could end up with a dozen or more of these details.  Seems like this would be a good wishlist item for Revit 2009.  An easy automated keyplan that can be placed on many sheets (like a keynote legend) without duplication.

OK.  OK.  I see that using a legend rather than a detail view is easier.  Just make 2 views (one West, and one East, or whatever) then drop them on the oppropriate sheets.

While on the subject, has anyone figured out a way to have the key plan update with building changes.  We have done both methods in our office, using multiple individual plans and ledgens.  The ledgens are nice so that there are not many views but it dosn't update as you make changes to the building, so, has anyone found an easy way to link the ledgen plan to the true plan of the building?

I've been thinking about this and need to do create a key plan myself and I think what I'm goning to do is Exprt the floor plan to a CAD file and Link it in to a Legend.  I will need to make a few diff legends but should the plan change all I will have to do is Export a new plan (from a view I have set aside soley for Exports) and reroute the link!

Not sure this will be the best way but I'm gonna try it and Ill let you know how it works out!
