Visibility graphic overrides are useful for hiding certain elements in Revit Architecture, but when a more temporary solution is needed, either the temporary hide command or an object-by-object approach can be used. This tutorial demonstrates multiple approaches that allow you to effectively hide and isolate objects in a model in Revit Architecture 2015
…As your models become more complex, it can be difficult…to see and edit certain elements from time to time.…In a previous movie, we saw that we can use…visibility graphic overrides to hide elements at the category level.…Sometimes however, you simply need to hide elements temporarily.…Or you want to hide individual particular elements in a certain view.…So in this movie, we're going to look at two ways that we can hide stuff.…We can hide things using the temporary hide command.…Or we can hide things in a more permanent fashion.…But we could do them object by object.…And so again in our exploration of visibility settings, moving…our way from the most global down to the most specific.…
We're starting to now hone in on things that…are much more specifically focused on very particular situations.…So I'm in a view here called Hide Isolate.…And I'm going to start with the Temporary Hide Isolate command.…Let's say that I want to do some work down in the foundation walls.…You can see that if I move my mouse around here, I can get those walls to highlight.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
