When we have an architectural link, we are at the mercy of the underlay in terms of what is showing up. I'm actually lying about that. We have full control over how that link is displayed. By tabbing over an item in an underlay, we can select items in teh link, and either hide them or override the graphics in view. Also in our visibility graphics dialog, we can override any setting we wish.

- [Voiceover] Now that we have an architectural model…linked into our model, I want to drill in a little deeper…and look at how we control the visibility…of the underlaid item.…Under Projects, let's go Open.…Let's grab our Visibility model, and let's click Open.…What I'd like to do is go down to Level 3.…Let's change the Discipline instead of Structural,…let's go to Coordination and click Apply.…We see part of our building,…but notice that it's not halftone.…
If we go down to Level 2, notice that is halftone.…Why is that?…Well if we go to Level 3, and if we zoom out,…and if we type v+g, this is visibility graphics.…We've done this before, but notice that it's…Visibility/Graphic Overrides for Structural Plan Level 3.…So it pertains specifically to this view.…Any changes we make here, any item we turn on or off,…is only reflected in the view we're working in.…
This is good or bad.…We can have as many views as we want…that look any way we want,…that's the good thing (chuckles),…but the bad thing is we can have as many views as we want…
