Align View Titles

In versions 2022 and forward you can use Ideate Align to align not only your views, but also align the view titles for plan-based views. In the image below the plan view on the right will be aligned with the one on the left. When “Match view title position” is checked, the location and length of the view titles will also be aligned such that the insertion of each is located in the same place, relative to the model.

This option is available only when the Align plan views using model coordinates is also checked.

Aligning Rotated Views

Aligning rotated views is fully supported starting with the November 2019 release. If you are experiencing any issues, please check that you have the latest release of IdeateApps for your Revit version. If so, please contact [email protected]

Advanced Workflow For Creating Sheet Sets — Save Time & Improve Accuracy

  1. Set up a ‘master’ sheet, make sure any rotated views have scope boxes assigned
  2. Use Ideate ViewCreator to batch-generate the rest of the level or discipline etc. specific views you will need for this sheet set (scope boxes are copied automatically)
  3. Use Clone to create your sheets & align the views, or use SheetManager to add the created views to existing sheets, then use Align to align them correctly
