After global settings have been changed via Revit Architecture's global styles command, objects can be hidden with the visibility and graphic overrides in Revit Architecture 2015. Learn how to use visibility graphics (VG) to show only desired elements in this work with visibility and graphic overrides in this video tutorial.
…There are many instances when you'll have a…need to control the way things display on screen.…In the previous movie we looked at the objects styles command,…which allowed us to change global settings like the line weight.…Or, we could change actually the color or the line styles in that dialog as well.…But, surprisingly, we can't use that method to actually hide and show objects.…Now, there are plenty of times when…you might actually just want to hide something.…Maybe I need to show a furniture plan, and that's going to show one set of objects.…And then I need to show a separate power…or equipment plan, and it's going to show some different objects.…
So, to turn things on and off, I actually have to use a different method.…And so in this movie we're going to…look at the visibility graphic overrides feature.…And, this is a view specific modification, so…any changes I make here won't be global.…They'll actually apply only to the view that I'm in.…And I'm in a file here called Visibility Graphics.…And I'm looking at Level 1 Floor Plan.…

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.
