    Hiding some annotation, but not all in linked model

    Hello and thank you all for the good answers.

    I am a structural engineer using Revit 2017.

    I have the architect's model linked in and there are about 12 room tags of his that I would like to show up on my plan. But there are about 100 that I do not want to see.

    So far, I have exported his floor plan to a DWG and erased everything but the 12 tags I want, and then linked that DWG into my plans.

    But, I would like to not use ANY AutoCAD if possible.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can override the visibility settings in linked files. In the view in which you want to hide some of the room labels, click Edit next to the Visibility/Graphics Overides entry in the Properties panel. In the dialog that opens, select the Revit Links tab. Look for the linked file that you want to manage visibilty for and click in the box under the Display Settings column. This will display a button in the box, click this to show the RVT Link Display Settings dialog. On the Basics tab, select the Custom option. On the Annotation Categories tab change the Annotation Categories: entry from <By Host View> to <Custom>. You could now overide the entire category, but as you want to leave some entries visible, click OK to close this dialogue and then OK again to close the previous dialogue. You can now select and hide the room names in the linked file. To select individual elements for from the file, first TAB through the selctions until just one of the room names is highlighted. Click to select it, then use normal selection techniques to select the rest of the room names that you want to hide. Right-click and choose Hide in View>Elements to hide.

      Why don't you just tag the rooms you care about in in your model and not worry about his tags at all? Since you would be tagging his rooms, this should not be a problem as all the room names and numbers would match between disciplines, yes?

        I'd go with jsnyder's method; especially if you want to add / subtract to the rooms you want to tag.

        Just make sure you have ticked the box for the rooms to be linked in the link's properties.

          This all makes sense to me. But, there are so many tags that it would take a long time, even if it's only once. So this works and I already knew it. I was just wondering for tricks I didn't know. thank you very much!

          I meant for this reply to be for John. Warburton. I will tag them myself. Sounds much more to the point.

          Thanks!!!!

            Yeah, and you can match the annotations to your own drawing style and just in case the architect removes his tags from that particular drawing or something else, you won't be left high and dry plus your tags refer to his [linked] rooms anyway and if he changes a name of a room yours will auto-update.
