Ever have this problem? You develop your scheme within Revit and before you know it you have a list of Views and Sheets as long as your arm.
Well there is a cure. Using this technique you can create folders to help organize your Views and Sheets.
Organising your Views....
First of all add a Project parameter called "Folder" with the following properties:
You can find Project Parameters under the Settings menu
Click Add, to add a new Project parameter
Pick a name for your new parameter. You will see above that I have chosen Folders. Ensure you choose Text as the Type and Text for Group Parameter Under. Tick Views as the category. You can now OK the Project parameters dialog box.
Now select Browser Organization from the Settings Menu
Select New and give choose a name for your new Browser Organization. I have called mine My new browser
Ensure the Folders Tab is completed as per the image below
Make sure there is a tick against the new Browser Organization Profile you have just created; and click OK.
If you now look to the left of your screen, you will see that your new Browser Organization has come into effect.
For each type of view (ie plans, ceiling plans, etc) your views are all lumped under one folder named ???. This is because you haven't created and actual parameters for the folders yet, We will do that now.
You can create the folder names you need directly from within the Properties dialogue box for each view.
You will see in the image above that I have picked a view, brought up its' Properties Dialog box and created a new folder I wish this view to be placed in by typing Plans as Proposed in the Folders Parameter box.
As soon as I click Apply, a folder called Plans as Proposed is created in the Browser and the view (in this case Detail 4) is listed under it.
You will see from the image below that I've now created a logical system of organising my views. Exactly the same can be done with ceiling plans, elevations, 3D views, etc. Note: You can select multiple views simultaneously and change the Folder Parameter for them in one go- this greatly speeds up the process of organizing your views.
....and your Sheets
Exactly the same can be done for drawing sheets. To do this you need to do the whole process again but select Drawing Sheets instead of Views, in the Category section of the Parameter Properties dialog box.
Now you can create a new Browser Organization- in this case I created one called My Sheets. You Group by Sheet Folders (or whatever name you chose for your Project parameter) and you sort by Sheet Number.
