    Filled Region on sheet.

    Small funniest Trick.

    We can’t use Filled Region & Masking Region tools on sheets.
    So that they appear to perform the following steps:
    1. On sheet draw some detail lines and create a group with them.
    2. In a Drafting view draw the Filled Region and create other group with them.
    3. Place on sheet group with detail line, select it and replace it with a group with filled region.

    At now we have Filled Region on sheet !

    This trick is funny because at first was idea, and then come up with how to apply this trick in practice.
    For example we have several fasad's on different sheets, we want to make a sign with the symbols of finishes and placed on each sheet. Do some of the identical view are not comfortable, and this method is ideally suited. And groups keep link with each other.

    That's very clever! I'll have to try that out.

    I'm probably not quite understanding you correctly, but here's a question: why not use "Legend" view for your symbols of finishes? You can place legend views on multiple sheets.

    p.s. is "Rassian Federation" the same as "Russian Federation" or just "Russia"? Curious if that was a misspelling or just the way it translates from Russian into english? my grandparents immigrated from Russia, but unfortunately I don't know much about it... but I still feel a kinship to Russia.

      Thank you.
      Yes, Of course you can use Legend. And it is best way
      as I said at first had the idea.
      I hope that this trick will push someone to the more interesting findings.
      later, lay out another trick that has appeared thanks to this idea.

      p.s. Thank you noticed my mistake, of course it was a misprint.
      I changed to Russia, suppose it will be easier.

        The second trick with Masking Region on sheet.

        How can I hide a single value (cell) or multiple values in the schedules?
        If done by the above method does not work, Masking Region is always behind the schedule on sheet.
        To hide something need to do the following:
        • Create a family based on a template TitleBlock
        • in the family create only Masking Region and parametrize its dimensions (instance)
        • put this family on sheet and adjust the size you want

        That's all

        I must say that it's not just my idea, unfortunately I can not remember nicknames of participants (because of the history of AUGI).
        As soon as I can see will show them here!

          This works well... also, once you have replaced the group you can "ungroup" it and then copy the original filled region around, change its type, etc.

                I found a reason to use this trick, I thought I'd share.

                I need a filled region to create a thick looking line, so the ends are rounded. It will be my outline for a schedule, I can't place a schedule on a sheet or make the outlines what I need. so I place it on the sheet, have no border in the schedule properties, and now with this trick, I can make that happen!!!

                Thank you soooooo much!
