Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using view templates, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
So 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? …Maybe you're not in a one-storey building; maybe it's a ten-storey building. …So whatever changes you make to the level one floor plan you might want to see similar …changes in levels two and three and four. …Likewise, if you have a furniture plan for level one, you might want the furniture plans …on the upper levels to display the same way.…
In cases like that, we have a feature called View Templates. And all a View Template does …is it captures all of the settings you've applied to a view, saves them under a name, …and then you can apply those settings to other similar views. …So let's have a look. …I'm here in a file called View Template, and I'm looking at the level one floor plan. …
