floor plan / /foundation

I have creating a small profile and placed it on top of a “basic wall foundation - 12 concrete” to achieve the type footing type typical in the southwest US.  

 

I have reviewed a number of youtubs and I am still not sure of the best work flow when creating the foundation plan as well as the sections. 

 

If I am on the right track the profile shows up in the floor plan view.  How do I keep the profile out of the foundation view?

 

Is there a better work flow?

You want to see that profile in the floor plan view but not in the foundation view? Why woud you want to show in a floor plan view? Wouldn't it be better to show it in the foundation floor plan, as a dashed line instead? Is not quite clear what the goal is.

In some firms, I have seen the use of "Slab Plans" which are dedicated to showing slab edges, thickened slabs, depressed/sunken slab areas, etc.

 

You could easily Duplicate with Detailing the Floor Plan and creat such a Slab Plan, and clearly show slab edges, etc.

and show annotations/dimensions clearly (without cluttering up the main Floor Plan and vice versa.)

Turn off Slab Edges under VG>Floors>Slab Edges. Then use that in a View Template and apply to the Floor Plan views.

(Not sure I excatly understood the question?).

I have added 3 attachments showing the steps I took to add a thicken slab edge to the floor slab. This thicken slab edge connects the slab to the top of footing.  The profile for the thicken slab edge shows up in the floor plan. 

Also in the section it will appear to the contractor that there is a cold joint between the concrete pore of the footing, the thicken slab edge, and floor slab.

My question is;  How do I remove from this from the floor plan view

How do I remove the line in the section view so the slab and thicken slab edge  profile are one piece. No line between the thicken slab edge and the slab.

I am new to Revit and not sure if this is the best way to add a footing.  I am going through a number of tutorials and YouTube videos. I have not run across a sample to produce slabs and footing like this.  So this is my best guess at the work flow.
