    Grid Filters and Visibility

    Trying to create a filter for grid lines per view. I first created an instance project parameter for my grid lines. Then created a view filter to 'not show' the grid lines I wanted to hide in a view. however, my the grid lines disappear in all views that the filter is assigned to. I would like to be able select and hide per view, not per filter. There are grid lines I don't want to show on every sheet... but there are some that I need to show. I would like to avoid using the right click and "hide in view" option. Is there a way to do this? Do I need to add another parameter?

    Assuming you have the filters set in a view template you apply to each
    Can't you use the AND (and OR if you run 2019) filter option to do that and having multiple parameters for the grids.
    It is a tricky one though I think.

    Are these your grids or do they belong to other discipline models? I start with the naming of the grid type, use a specific grid for specific purpose. The filter can focus on that easily. You don't control other people's models so it is easiest to focus on your own because you do control them and your filters. For example, I'd use Grid-S for my own (assuming structural discipline). My filter would require a Grid-S type to be visible, all others would turned off. If I have different grids for different parts of the model a scope box might help control their visibility without a filter at all.

    Yes, they will all be grids in the same discipline. But, the reason I need to hide grids is because I have an 8 level building that some grids are only relevant to certain levels. I think I understand that I will have to create various "level" filters and apply them as needed per levels.
    Thank you so much for all of your support and responses

    You dont need filters for this: just push/pull the 3d extents of them so they are only relevant for the levels they should be (or assign them setup scope boxes)

    Scope Box can help with that, as mentioned already.

    I have never really utilized scope boxes. I am not sure how to use them in regards to grids.
    But it sounds like scope boxes can be very powerful. I will look into them. Thanks for the tip!
