    Hide elevation marker by type

    I have 3 different elevation types, Building, Interior, and Window. The Building and Interior use the same tag but are different types, the Window elevation is a different elevation tag.
    This method will organize our project browser and keep the different elevation types separate.
    However, I want to be able to quickly hide all the window elevation symbols in a particular view. Is there a way to do this?
    In the view properties, there is only one check box for elevations (you can't create a subcategory even though in the Object Styles, there are subcategories).
    We are currently using curtain walls for our windows, as we find them easier to manipulate on the fly. We then elevate the "windows" for our window legend. I created an elevation symbol that looks like our old CAD window tag. This way, you can click on the "window tag" and it will take you to the elevation of the window. But since it's a elevation symbol, it shows up in additional plans that we may not want them to show (i.e. the Roof Plan) and because the drawings scales are the same, I can't use the "hide at scales" function.
    Any ideas?

    I would try two different ways. First, can you right click-select all instances? Or does that select all of them? Second, and best if it works would to be to set up Filters for the three different types and that way all you have to do is add the fillter and check them on or off.

      Ha! I could have sworn that in the past the "select all instances" did not work, but it certainly works now.
      And I must have had a total brain fart this morning, because I tried to do the filter option, but totally overlooked the Elevation category and so I didn't think it was possible. Duh!:crazy::thumbsup:

        I would try method number two, given that selecting all instances, if they are different, it will still take + or - 6 clicks to change the visibility on them again vs 4 clicks using the filters. These clicks add up with time. The initial setup took me about 2 minutes or less and now you can just turn them on and off as needed

          I would also recommend the 2nd method. If you add any additional frame type elevations, the filter will automatically hide it while the instance based hide method will not catch new elevation views.

            Ya, I've no idea why I missed the filter option before I posted. I promise I really did try that way, but I think I was looking for a View category or something. Thanks for the advice everyone.
