    Delete all Instances of Family in Current View Only

    How would I go about Selecting all instances in the current view of a list of Family Types and deleting them from that view only.

    I am selecting the Family Types using the Family Types node and combining them together into a list and selecting all elements of family type and then deleting them.

    I just need to get this to only do the elements in the current view not in the whole project.



    I have also posted this on the Dynamo Forum

    For a similar situation, I used spring nodes collector.ElementsInView to collect elements from a specified view, and then used SetIntersection on the 2 lists. SetDifference would give you elements in the model but not in the specified view.

    This is how I would approach this problem. Note that this will only pull elements within the Crop Boundary of your active view.
