    Sorry for the bogus info. In the future I'm going to go with Aaron's suggestion also
    Dave, it's not bogus info. Aaron's was just better! lol

    After you create the schedule which includes,"view names, associated level, phase, sheet name, sheet number, title on sheet, scale, and detail level, you can add a conditional format (color) to indicate which views have been placed on sheets. Quick way to show you which views need to be placed.

    I reckon its a good idea to generally have the project browser organised as per Aarons method (ie: Not on sheets...) mainly since then one knows not to muck around with it etc! Its too easy to completely muck up a sheet if one doesnt realise the section/ detail or whatever is on a sheet.

    Project browser approach is a no-brainer, I believe it is even setup in the OOTB generic template anyway so not much to do than apply. The only problem is when users sync/save and then another new-user opens the file with the project browser set that way. It can take some time for them to figure out what is going on

    Another key thing I use the project browser in this way for is after major documentation issues to check that projects are not bogged down with not used views, particularly sections. It can be a quick way to delete working sections that are no longer required

    In private, i have begged and begged and begged Autodesk to make Project Browser settings user specific. If *I* want it on Views- All or Views Not on Sheets, and i change it, that will throw the entry level users in to a fit, because when they SWC they get disoriented.

    ive also asked for some formatting, or coloring, or tabbed organization. SOMETHING, better than one giant list, considering how many different categories of "stuff" there is:

    Views (Every category)
    Schedules
    Sheets
    Families (every category)

    I agree with breaking up the big list. Especially for a new user.

    I'm just getting the hang of the idea that the category isn't there until something is created. So, for instance, you do a rendering and save it to the project. Now, all of a sudden, there is a rendering category, which is great. Nice touch that it isn't there if it's not needed. But it throws you off at first when new categories just appear. lol
