I wish I may I wish I might have a way to organize views in the project browser. For instance...I don't like that all the sections (including callouts and details) are all lumped together. It would be nice to create a subfolder that I could move all the callouts or details, etc. into a seperate folder. Take a look at how programs like Photoshop do it.

that would be nice.

You could simply add a project parameter to all views so that you can sort them by it.

Settings->Project Parameters->Add...the select "Views" from the Categories List...type the name as what ever you want. Group parameter under "Other", Dicipline "Common", Type of Parameter "Text".  Click OK and add any others that you want to be sorting by.  Next under "Projcet Browser" right click on the top most item "Views" go to properties, click on Edit in the same row as "Folders" and so now you have them sorting by Family and Type, the select the next one that you want it to sort by (a parameter you just made), and then if you made a second on do that to the second "Then by"

 HTH

The attached pdf shows how I've been organizing drawing views.

It's an alternate method to creating "project parameters".

dano3d,

     That's perfect. That's much, much closer to my ideal way to do it. Now, only if you could drag and drop from one view catagory to the next, instead of going through the options bar...

thanks!

I'm happy to hear this worked for you.

I agree with you... the Revit browser needs help!

On my wish-list the Browser would look just like the Photoshop browser.

I'm a "cheesehead", so "GO PACKERS!!!"

Is there no way to do this with floor plans?  I would really like to place my MEP plans in a category, and my Structural Framing plans in another as well as have my default Floor plans category.  Is there anyway to do this?  Easily like Dano showed?  Thanks,

Lorne

First - You do know that you already have a discipline category that doesn't just have architectural but includes structural, mechanical, electrical and coordination?

 

If you want more than that, see this thread  http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=10296
