Browser Organization Filters

353 Views, 3 Replies

I created a project parameter called "Appears in Browser" as a "Yes/No" type for Views Categories.

I created a custom Browser Organization for Views Filtered By "Appears in Browser" equal to "Yes"

 

This works great except for those views which are neither checked Yes or No... for instance any NEW view!  I can get new views to appear by changing the filter to be equal to "None", but then the "Yes" views do not show up.

 

You would think if I set the filter to "Appears in Browser" NOT Equal to "No" this would solve the problem, but it does not.  Am I doing something wrong?

 

I desperately want to change the "AND" logic to "OR" logic so I can have two filters set to "Appears in Browser" equals to "Yes" OR "Appears in Browser" equal to "None".

 

Two Questions:

1) Where Can I add this comment to a WISHLIST for future releases?

2) Is there any other way to acheive a "Yes" or "None" filter or filter to Show All but "No"

You're right - this seems to flat out just not want to function correctly. Doesn't work with Text, an Integer, or even a Length Parameter (cannot filter by a Length Parameter, apparently). The work-around I see at the moment is to put an "X" into the "Title on Sheet" Parameter for the Views you want to hide, and set the filter to Not Equal to "X". This seems to work, at least...

Re: Browser Organization Filters

11-13-2012 08:37 PM in reply to: bdmarmor

I'm trying to do something somewhat similar, but having no luck - please help.

 

I am setting up a number of Schedule Keys to drive input values for our company standardized Door Schedule.  I want to Filter the Schedule Key Views from the Project Browser (since there may be many, and since the information is standardized and not to be changed).

 

My approach was to set up a View Template (I'm using 2013) that apply to Schedule views called Filtered Schedule Keys and then modify my Browser Organization to include a Filter by: View Template and set it Equal to Filtered Schedule Keys.  The problem is that Revit won't let me choose this View Template in the Browser Organization Properties settings.

 

Why doesn't my Schedule View Template appear on this Filter list?

Why can't I Filter using View Name with a "Contains" or "Does Not Contain" instead of just "Equal To" or "Not Equal To"?

 

The Schedule Key views don't have a "Title on Sheet" so I can't use the previous suggestion.  Any other workarounds for now to acheive what I'm after?

Unfortunately, Legends and Schedule Views simply cannot be filtered in the Project Browser. Notice that the Browser Filter name is listed in parentheses beside the header only for the headers "Views" and "Sheets". I would suggest prefixing the View Name of all of the Schedules Keys with a symbol such as "§" which will sort them at the bottom of the list. Maybe you could even add the suffix "(Do NOT Edit!)" to the View Name as well.
