    Door Swing Visible in Level Below

    How do I keep door swings on a lower level from showing up on a higher level when my view depth extends down to the next lower level?

    So far I've just been manually hiding the offending doors but I'm thinking there must be a better, more Revit way.

    How about visiting that level below, selecting all doors in view, then going back to your view above and making you change en-mass? Or am I off the mark here.

      That would make hiding them a little faster.

      I could also add a parameter to my lower level doors and create a filter that hides them... but then I still have to manually select the doors and tweak that parameter.

      I'm thinking there might be something in how I build the family and/or the swing that would make it not visible unless the door was cut.

        Are your doors built with a nested set of symbolic lines to show the leaf swinging? If so, under visibility settings in the nested family, there is a check box for "show only if instance is cut". That should do it for ya.

          Had to do the invisible line trick but that did about what I expected. Thanks!

          Oddly, I can still select the doors on the lower level (which I'd prefer not to).

            Or...you can create a filter for Doors by a particular level, and then turn it off. Worked for me.

              This might have been before Filters where available... or at least before I started understanding how to use them! But yes, that would be the better approach now.
