Is there a way to see all design options in one view? I'm working on a project where we're showing a school district different options of where we can add classrooms to an existing school, and I'd like to show an overall plan with all options on it then break it down from there. But I can't get all the options to show up at the same time. What am I missing?

TIA

Devin

Im not really sure on how you are using your design options, but showing them all at once is not possible.  The way I would do this is set up different views of the different choices, and then you can place them side by side on a sheet.  Having all options visible at once seems to be an odd request, usually design options are for things like a floor plan change, where you have different varieties of a lobby or something, and having them all seen at once would just be a jumbled mess.  If Im not getting why you want to show them all at once please explaine and I will think of something else.

i don't think you can do something like that with design options. you might might be able to accomplish something like that with phasing though. hopefully someone else will have a better anwser.

This wouldn't be a jumbled mess since the different rooms attach to different parts of the building, otherwise I can see where you're coming from. The project architect wants to be able to have an overall view of the entire existing building with the different options all shown. Guess I'll just have to fudge it!

Add a new option called combined .... Open each of yoou existing options & select everything new in that option and add it to the combined option using the "Add to Design Option" Plus sign. Set up a view showing the combined option.....

 

You may have to do a new roof....

If you have different parts of a building you should have it as a different design option set.  This way you can show them both.  What is the reasoning for having it all in one option set?

I added a new option named 'everything' and put everything in it as well as it's own option, that seems to work just fine. Thanks for the suggestion!

 They're not in  separate option sets because I really don't know what I'm doing! For the most part, I'm winging it as I go. There's no "Revit Guy" in our office, we're all learning as we go. Since no one here knows much about design options, I get to be the guinea pig.
