    dependent views

    Is there a way to reapply all the settings from the master view to its dependent views? I have a project where a lot of elements have been hidden and annotations overridden that I would like to not have to go through each dependent view to reset.

    A view template would be able to handle that.

    Not if theyve been hidden with right click, or overridden with right click.

    Yep. I really want to be able to right-click on the parent view or something and then be able to reset all the custom overrides/hides in the dependent views as per the parent. For tags it's not so hard as you can just select them all and then cut and paste them back to the same spot to reset them, but for hidden elements there's no such luck...

    Yeah. The trouble is: Hiding per view is the ONE thing (intentionally) that the Parent isnt controlling, so that you can hide things along the borders of the dependent views. IE in Area 1, you can hide tags that show up from area 2, because you cant delete them or they delete from everywhere.

    But i think you can Dynamo grabbing all the hidden elements in the dependent views, and setting them to not be hidden?

    How about making another dependent view and deleting the problem one?

    Yeah, I understand the logic behind why you are allowed to hide things per view in a dependent view, I just wish that you could also reset all the dependent views back to the parent view. In this case, at my office we hafltone annotations for existing items, however I was needing to revert the tags back to full tone. Similarly, some piping and ductwork was hidden along the view boundary as we used to use squiggles to show that they continued on. However we changed our standards to not use squiggles and just have the line stop at the view boundary. Deleting these squiggles on my current project (we use duct/pipe unions) caused many of my pipes to become the hidden portion of the piping, which was obviously undesirable.

    In this case I am making a record drawing set, so having to recreate and replace all of the views on the sheets seemed to be too much work to do manually.

    That can be done with Dynamo. The OverrideGraphicSettings.ByProperty node will allow you to set the overrides, including hidden status.

    Pick your poison. If you can't find an automated way of doing it, I would opt for recreating the views and replacing them on the sheets over trying to locate all the overrides.
