Copying Graphical Changes for Levels from One View to Another


November 20, 2017 | Architecture and Engineering, All

In today’s installment of “Why did I never see that before” (which is really embarrassing, by the way)…

My wife has told me on more than one occasion that I’m not very observant sometimes.  Here is proof – but in case you’re like me and tend to miss the forest AND the trees:

If you’ve made graphical changes to level lines in Revit and need to make those same changes in other elevations and sections, there is a really easy way to do it – “Propagate Extents”. In the image below, I’ve put “doglegs” on several levels, and I’d like the same effect to be added to the levels in my other elevations. By just moving my eyeballs a little northward I discovered the “Propagate Extents” button on the ribbon. You know the ribbon – that’s that thing that you should always be looking at. I’m SURE that button just magically appeared recently…

The only downside is it only shows you views that are parallel to the same clipping plane as your current view to make the change in. But at least it gets you halfway there.
