View Filter Manager lists all View Filters contained in the project. With this tool you get information about which Views and View Templates these filters are used in. The dialog of this tool is modeless so you can move the window aside and continue to work in Revit at the same time.
The left side of the window lists all View Filters in your project and on the right side is a list of Views and View Templates with check boxes indicating if the View Filter is being used.
The main Features of this tool are:
- Displaying all View Filters from the project,
- Displaying basic information about View Filters,
- Displaying information about views in which the Filters are used,
- Adding and removing of View Filters from Views,
- Deleting View Filters from project,
To use this tool your project needs to have View Filters created. To create a View Filter you can use Revit's option in View tab - Visibility Graphics. You can also easily create View Filters with Naviate Color Elements tool.
The workflow consists of following steps:
- Run View Filter Manager from Manage Project drop-down.
- On the left side of the tool window, the View Filters are listed. Here you can see the filter name, filter type (Rule based or Selection) and the number of views it is being used in.
- On the right side of the window there is a tree-view that lists all Views or View Templates.
Checkboxes in "Used in Views" tree-view are used to add or remove the View Filter from the view. If you try to remove a filter from a View Template, you will get a warning that checking/unchecking a View Template does not only affect the View Template itself, but also all Views using that View Template.
- Use Filter search byr to filter out Views by name
Notes and Tips:
If you have many View Filters in your project and need to remove the unused ones, turning on the "Hide Used" toggle button will list only unused View Filters.
You can select multiple View Filters and delete them. Note that you cannot delete a View Filter if it is being used in at least one View Template. To delete this View Filter, first remove it from the View Template.
