    Working Views and Annotation Views - display of view callouts

    Hi all.

    I'm having some difficulty in setting up the project browser in the template to differentiate between Working and Annotation views. Actually, setting up the browser to sort the views by the types was the easy part. The part I'm having difficulty with is that the view callouts (elevation tags, specifically), still show up in the floor plans where I don't want them. For example, my west elevation annotation callout shows up in the west elevation working view, and vice versa, since each view is a duplicate of the other.

    I don't want to have to manually hide the annotation callouts in the working views (etc.), so I thought a filter would do the trick. And it does...sort of. The filter will hide the active portion of the callout (the part you double-click on to go to the view it references), but it won't hide the callout head (the portion that references which sheet the view is on). Any ideas, or am I stuck manually hiding every new elevation tag several times?

    See attached image for reference.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ross, I assume you are defining the elevation views with a comment or some such and filtering on that? Because sadly, that doesn't work as you noticed. Because the part associated with the actual view is the arrow, so the reference bubble actually doesn't contain the same data, and thus doesn't filter.

    The trick I use is to have an actual Working Elevation type. I actually use the square graphic to highlight the fact that it should never be seen on a sheet. And because both the bubble and the arrows are of the Working type, you get the filter effect you are looking for. I even created a box based section bubble for Working sections to be consistent.

    Ahhh, a different elevation type. Sometimes the answer is so obvious, it's impossible to see.

    Thanks for your help, Gordon.

    Awesome. This will work with our current standards. Great idea. Never even tried filtering this way. I wish i could filter by sub catatagorie

    That's the way I've set it up in our office too. I've got working sections and working elevations and view templates set to quickly hide or show these in each view. They're a different colour (red) to all my regular view annotations.
