Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with visibility and graphic overrides, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.

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 will actually apply only to the view that I am in. And I'm in a file here called …Visibility/Graphics, and I'm looking at Level 1 floor plan. …
