Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using view templates, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Visibility graphics gives us a way to modify what we're seeing on a view by view…basis and as we saw in the previous movie it can be a very powerful way for us to…manage different kinds of views. But what do you do in a situation where…you have a project that has lots of views that are similar to one another.…So maybe you have a ten story building, and whatever changes you make on your…level one floor plan or furniture plan, you want to see on the upper levels as well.…In cases like that, we have a feature called View Templates.…And all a View Template does is capture all of the settings that you've applied to…a view, saves them under a name, and then you can apply those settings to other…similar kinds of views. So let's have a look.…
So I'm in a file called View Template. And I'm in the level one floor plan.…And I'm going to zoom in on some portion of the floor plan over here.…So as you can see there is this concrete stipple pattern applied across all the…floor slabs in this view. Now that may be appropriate to show in…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
