    hide levels of attached links

    Yes i can hear you laughing at this age old question of how do i hide levels of attached links in a host file elevation/section . Well I've been stuck on this all afternoon, searching and reading and still cannot find a workable solution.

    Same old story, ive inherited a project (ugh) with around 20 linked in apartment types, each of which have linked by attachment, a kitchen project file and a bathroom or two project file. "But..but..groups!" I hear you say. Lets just say that groups aren't gonna happen right now (please, lol).

    I've tried the workset thing, view filters, VG custom link settings, even attempting to tab select down in the view so i can hide element etc, but no. No joy. I can get the parent link files behaving but their horrible little attached child links are misbehaving. They are persistently messing up my views
    Of course the attached files behave when im directly working on their parent but as soon as i go up to the master file they just wont listen.

    I seriously wont have time to restructure the link matrix (link child directly into master or whatever) as these drawings are expected by lunchtime tommorrow.

    Is it actually possible to reach down to attached links and turn these things off??
    I need

    Ok so i just got home and tried again with a quick slap together. Filters are working perfectly using either NOT master level type name or EQUALS attached level type name.
    I don't get it. I know i tried this on my office project.

    I'll report back tommorrow morning as soon as I've had another attempt.

    Maybe its the I'm now enjoying

    Figured it out. The section that has been giving me grief is set to 'by linked view'. Doh. Still, it's never fun inheriting someone else's clusterf***.

    Mmmm

    Pretty sure you can manage it through the imported categories tab under ("VG")

    Hard to say without having your specific files in front of me to test it out, but yeah my next port of call if it wasn't Under imported categories, would be to check the linked view etc settings there.

    Im not dealing with imported categories, but linked revit files.

    Applied a NOT filter to levels by type name, unchecked it and 30 seconds later i had what i wanted. Also, these particular views werent set to 'by linked view' so i have no idea why i failed so miserably yesterday. Haha

    my issue was hiding the levels visible from linked models, so I will discuss levels. The same method can be applied to other element types though.

    in your Revit model, name your level type to something unique, something not in any of the linked files. It could be something as simple as a prefix or suffix - for example "A-..."

    create a view filter for the level category with 'type name' parameter > 'does not equal' and select your level type name from the drop down.

    add this filter to your filters tab of visibility graphics and uncheck the tick box. Now, any level type that is not named exactly as per your view filter - including those in links - will be turned off in that view.

    You can try by hitting the VG/VV command, then you can look for your linked models (RVT) and once then you just need to look for the Visibility parameters and once then you must check the (Personalized?? not sure if this is the name in English but you can figured it out by looking the pic) once then you need to look to the category (model or Drafting) in this case annotation categories can do the trick, hope this is clear enough!!

    hi elton
    i know what you mean, unfortunaltly i need to modify objets in my link
    we received a file upadted every week (this file hasn't any worksets!!! grrrrr) and i'm looking for a way to hide element by filter
    this project is a 2018 file
    hi andres
    VV is a way but i need to apply these changes each time for each view, filter is a easier way, well, i can still create a view template with a custom revit links and then apply to other specific template (whixh doesn't modify revit link) but filter is in my mind a more comfortable way
    i need to this about this method, may be it's the only one
    thanks all
    Phil

    Look in to Placeholder Links in your template. All of this is extra work you don't have to be doing job after job.
