35 View Filters
Welcome to this demonstration on Bonus Tools - View Filters
View Filters allows you to copy Filters and their settings from one View to multiple other Views, including View Templates. This is fast time saving tool that could be effectively used with View Templates. It can be very time consuming recreating Filters across Views or View Templates even when you have a highly developed Project Template.
This Tool is available for Revit 2014 and newer versions of Revit.
- To run the tool, navigate to the Bonus Tools Tab and select View Filters.
- The View Filters dialog will appear.
- Searching for Filters already associated to Views as a template.
- You can filter the Views by selecting the View Type.
- Further refine the search choosing Include View Templates or Include Views.
- And enter a word in the Search box to refine your search.
- Select a View from the Views List.
- There are 2 operations you, add and remove.
- To add Views to Filters simply select one or many Filters from the left hand side and drag them to the desired View.
- To remove existing or newly placed Filters select then one at a time and drag them to the left, you will be prompt with a confirmation dialog.
- Click Ok.
- At any point you can Collapse All or Expand All.
- Once you click Ok the changes will be committed, if you click cancel then the project will be unchanged.
- Once completed a confirmation dialog will appear displaying the number of Filters added & removed from View(s).
- If you look at the Visibility Graphics of a modified View you will notice it will now contain the added Filters.
Note: The dialog when opened will displays filters on the left hand side and all Views and View Templates with their associated Filters on the right and side.

Note: The existing Filters associated to a View are in grey and new Filters to be added to the View are in green.
Note: Any exiting Filters removed from a View are in red.
