Filter doesn't function correctly when the main language of Revit change

Hello everyone,

 

In my office, we use both French and English version of Revit and we stumble upon a little bug : If a filter were created in English version, when the same file being opened by a French version of Revit, that filter won't function anymore (ex: A hidden section mark will become visible, etc). Do you know if there's any workaround for this issue ?

 

Thanks in advance for your answers.

When the components are SYSTEM components (ie: sections/elevations/basic walls...etc) AND if the filter is uses a condition which is a language based nomenclature .. it will not work. Instead use a boolean, the comment, Description or a user defined text parameter

 

Example: if in a Filter that uses Family Name parameter to override walls in a view and the condition used is Contains:

  • if the value is "wall" it will work in the English version
  • opening the same in the french version or the German version it will not work...because the system family name in those versions changes (Mur or Wand)

You need to update the filter

Thank you for your answer.

 

Yes, I see the workaround as I read your answer : instead of define the condition of filter by using the system name that changes between language, it should be defined by the name of type that we name ourself and that is unchanged between language system.

 

I tested and it worked great. Many thanks for the insight.

Have a great day !
