    crop call out

    Hello All
    I am using revit Arch 2012
    I chop my plans to dependents view.
    when a bit part of a call out is inside the one view, show all boundary of it.
    I want to:
    1)cut off the boundary of call out
    or
    2)Hide it just in one view
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Right-click the boundary line > Override graphics in View > Hide element or Hide category.
    This task can be automated by creating filters or better yet, a view template.

        it's not very Revit-like, but I create a line style that matches the border for the callout outline, then use Detail Lines to recreate a similar border. Then hide the actual callout border in view. Wish there was a way to crop that callout in a view.

            Bringing this back from the dead to see if 2015 or 2016 release has addressed this?

              No. Use a reference callout for the piece you want to keep.

              Better yet, don't use Dependent views.

                Why would say not to use dependent views?

                  Because of all the annotations from other views you have to manually hide in the dependent views.

                  I think it used to be a requirement to get a view reference for a matchline to work but no longer. Now the only advantages I can see are keeping your browser organized (marginally better), and being able to annotate in a single view and have the annotations appear in the dependent. But since you need to go into the dependents in order to hide things that shouldn't be showing you might as well work in the dependents to which I then say "what's the point."

                  I don't think filters will work because visibility graphics from one dependent apply to all dependents in the same group. Besides, you'd still have to manually set parameters for the annotations you don't want to see in order to get the filter to work.

                    My situation is a tad different from the OP's.

                    I am using a grid of scope boxes to break up a very large overall plan into 16 views. I have placed a callout on the overall plan which spans several of the scope boxes. What happens is the callout annotation boundary displays fine on the overall plan, but disappears on any of the scope boxed views. I have tried using referenced callout annotation - but it remains that if any portion of the callout is beyond the region of the scope box then the callout will disappear completely.

                    So, I am using referenced callouts, without luck. Right now I'm stuck using LeanneZ's solution of drawing a fake callout with detail lines.
