I applied 7 filters to my project to distinguidh between all 7 types of walls used within the project. then I created a view template that has all 7 filters to override walls pattern I applied the view template to my 2 floor plans and I put both plans in one sheet , then I needed to add a wall legend to add to the sheet , so I started adding all 7 walls to the legend and then I applied the same view template , but the view template didn't work in the legend ( wall patterns won't show ).
Any ideas .
Yes, the view template settings that you applied for the walls in a model view will not work on the Legend. I assume it is because the legend is not really a model view.
Other ideas I've seen about a legend for wall types include:
- using a Revit link with all the wall types,
- creating the sample wall types in a layer that happens before the Existing phase.
There might be other threads describing these methods in more detail.
