    "Show In" Property question

    Why do some detail views have this property available and some don't?

    Perhaps these views were made as "dependent" views, and the others were not?

      Are they all "Callout:detail" views or are some of them "Callout:Floor Plan" views?

      Detail views = Have that option, can be referenced by horizontal section marks, and dont always need the Parent View to exist anymore (i think)

      Floor Plan Views = Dont have that option, only show up in the parent view, cant be referenced by section marks, and the parent view can never go away.

        Yes, some are :detail and some are :floor plan...
        Why don't both have the option? It seems rather silly.

          They behave differently in a number of ways. Aside from the above, Detail views seem to act more *peculiar* about visibility. I wish i had a more finite explanation for it, but i dont. Small Plan Details made out of Detail Views will sometimes refuse to show Linked Files unless the Crop region is made bigger, which is nuts. Ive seen LOD and Structural Members go bizerk as well.

          Its one of the things i dont have a firm handle on, because ive never really cared. It doesnt affect me all that much. Even though you cant switch them, its 20 seconds to create a new view, copy over detailing, and blow the other one away.

          I tell people in training, if:

          You need to show a horizontal section marker referencing it, its a Detail.
          If you want to see the reference for it in multiple places, its a Detail.

          Otherwise, its a Floor Plan.

          Im sure someone else can chime in with more specifics, if they have had the time to study them.
