    Element graphic properties based on phases without using phase filters

    I am wondering if there is a way to assign graphic properties to elements based on their phase without using the phase filters. So to explain what I am doing, the project is in three phases, Existing, phase 1, and phase 2.

    What I want is for every wall created in the existing phase to be gray, and every wall in phase 1 and 2 to be white. I want to do this independent of phase filters because with more than two phases, the system seems to not work in regards to graphics because it treats all previous phases as existing, and therefore all the walls are gray, rather than just the existing phase. There is no option in the phase filters, to assign colors to specific phases. For instance, I have a view where I want to show the complete, therefore the phase is set to phase 2, and the phase filter is "show previous + new" where the override for all phases before phase 2 are treated as existing, and therefore, will show up gray, rather than just having the walls in existing phase to show as gray. If they phase is set to phase 1, existing will show up as gray and phase 2 will not be showing at all. Is there anyway around this issue?

    Multiple views, stacked on the sheet, and use Phase Filters.

      Well, in the phase manager, you have the possibility to define what you what to see in each mode. Furthermore, when the filter phase is set to show all, you can see whatever you want to see. I suggest you to go look at the revit help, they made a usefull section on this.

      Kate is 100% correct. If any existing conditions overrides exist, only one phase can show as new in a single view.

        Which comes back to the issue that in order for existing to look one way, and phases 1 & 2 another you either have to stack views or add some duplicate information to the elements to be able to create a filter.

          Show complete will also show anything not demolished as all new, but the OP was trying to find a way to show certain phases as new together, while still showing existing as existing. That cannot be done with the standard phase filters. You can either stack views on the sheet with specific phase filter settings, or create custom parameters and view filters to manually control them.

            Which 100% wasnt the question that was asked, at all. Not even a little bit. Not even for a second.
