    Sub-discipline creation.

    I have no idea, I cannot remember how I did this:crazy:. I made a sub-discipline called "Refrigeration" that's selectable in the properties dialogue box. Firstly, does anyone know how I did this? Secondly, does anyone know how I may set a default visibility setting for it?

    Ciao for now.
    Say something interesting....

    Okay, I have an idea how I made the sub-discipline but don't know how to make a default visibility setting for it.

      Sub-disciplines are simply typed into the Properties Palette. Once typed it can be selected in the drop-down list on other views.

      As for your query on creating default visibility settings, I don't see any other solution other that using View Templates.. Hope others can shed light on this.

        You cannot assign a visibility state to a Sub D. The only purpose is for arrangement or placement in the project browser.

          Sub Categories have much less opportunity to override or set visibilities up for.

          What are you specifically trying to accomplish? There may be a different way to get the results you desire.

            I was hoping to have a visability template linked to the sub-discipline "Refrigeration" so all I had to do was sort the view into the sub-discipline and have the visability template apply automatically to it.
            I've attempted a Project Template, but I somehow lost the visability templates and the visability filters in the making.
            I feel I kinda have half a template - all the right levels, wall and door families but as I said: somehow the visability templates and filters didn't 'stick'.

              can you upload a sample of your template? or a screenshot of what you were doing? View Templates, included within are the Filters, are supposed to be included in the Project Templates... ..as for the Filters, if you applied those to, let's say, Worksets, you will lose that Filter as not all Projects will have Worksets.

                No longer necessary! I figured out that I can 'upload' view templates. On the Manage tab under Transfer Project Standards theres a tickbox list of items that can be 'pulled' in from other open projects.
                Procedure:
                Open project with standard you require AND project you want standard in.
                Make the project you want the standard in current.
                Go to Manage tab and select Transfer Project Standards.
                On the window with check-boxes select ONLY the standards you require. (I use the 'check none' button then select the one or two I require)
                Click okay and follow the prompts and heed the warnings.
