Filters Tab

The Filters tab within Link Properties allows you to edit the filters that limit the elements used by export. The filters are rule-based and will remain with the link definition when saving links.  There is no limit to the number of filters that can be applied and, unlike Revit, the default filter condition is 'OR', not 'AND'.  To replicate the Revit condition select the checkbox to apply the rule that 'Elements Must Pass All Filters'.  In the example shown the View link will display any View that has a family name that contains either the word 'plan' or the word 'elevation'.

Properties that are available for filtering are not limited to those defined within the Link Definition.  To access additional properties, use the drop-down box as shown and select 'Other Properties'.

Phase Filters
Select from the phase and phase filter to filter the elements that are exported based on their Phase Created and Phase Demolished.  The Phase Filter is only available for model objects that support phasing.  Rooms, for example, can only be filtered by Phase, and not by Phase Filter.  Sheets will have neither a Phase nor a Phase Filter option.
