    Combined Parameter - Filtering & Sorting

    Is it possible to filter and sort by combined parameters in 2019?

    Back to the drawing board then! I have filters across a couple of different categories and a multi cat schedule doesnt fully do what I want either

    You could use Dynamo to combine them into a new parameter.

    Just to point out the reason I ask this.

    I have several models linked into a site model and some are copied. Have changed the Identity Name of the model to be the plot number. I wanted this plot number in my schedule. The only way I can schedule this is using a 'RVT Links' Schedule.

    I was initially going to use schedules side by side on a sheet. However I have no way of sorting the foundation schedule to suit the RVT Links one. I cannot put in an instance parameter as the parameter remains read only.

    Would this work if I create a new parameter using Dynamo?

    In the structural foundation schedule, check "include elements in links". Then from the "Select available fields from" select "RVT Links:Name". Now you can sort and filter the schedule by the name of the link. And that name can be changed, not in the schedule but selecting the link in the view.

    Alfredo, I could kiss you.

    I did have the box ticked, however I didnt click on the drop down where it says "Select available fields from"

    Thanks, you're a star
