    Views on multiple sheets

    Is there a way to place a view on multiple sheets? For example, I have all of my interior elevations already set up on sheets, but I want to create a sketch with just the interior elevations of one room that I can print to review with my clients. Other than creating duplicate interior elevation views (not ideal), is there another way to do this?

    There is not a way to do this. Creating a duplicate view is the best option.

      Annoying. Now I'm going to have tons of duplicate views.
      Revit needs to learn to deal with SK's.

        I would agree. Revit is able to have levels be reference or non reference. Why couldnt we have a similar feature for sections or elevations... or even drafting views.

          What do you mean by SK?

          The reason this will NEVER be able to do this is if you place your section on 5 sheets which of the 5 sheets is your section head going to show? The way we used to deal with SKs is by making an SK titleblock and just placing it directly over the other sheet, print and then take off the SK titleblock.

            Doesn't the only thing that having a level being non-reference does is it does not have a floor plan associated to it? So it has a level for things to attach but does not make any views based on that level...how is that similar to what you are wanting with other views?

              Its the same basic idea. You dont always want a plan for every level. So you have have it not make a plan view.... ie "reference plan". Its the same basic idea...

              You sometimes want to place a view on many sheets.
              Add the ability to place a view on sheets without referencing. Have a master view reference requirement. Once your master view reference is placed you can now place it on any sheet, but it will always reference the master view reference.

              IDk the way my brain works it seems simple enough, but i am not a programer. It would be nice to have this ability in Revit though.

                ok, so maybe I'm misreading this discussion. But isn't this covered by the "Duplicate as a Dependent" option?

                  Thats actually what I was thinking as well...if you just did a duplicate as a dependent and put it on an other sheet it should work pretty well..

                    Try to duplicate with dependant on a drafting view!!! Maybe it would be nice to not have 35 duplicates of a plan... or section... or elevation, just so you can put them on other sheets.

                    Granted this condition dosent happen all the time and there are work arounds avaliable. But why settle for less when its able to do more.
