Set the Alignment View

With IdeateApps for Revit's Ideate Align tool, you can open a Sheet with a placed View (Viewport) that represents the condition you’d like to enforce across one or more other Sheets.You can use Ideate SheetManager for Revit to quickly find the Sheet you need for this task.

Set the Alignment View

  1. When the active Revit View is a Sheet, launch Ideate Align from within SheetManager or by selecting from the Ideate Software tab under the IdeateApps ribbon. 
  2. The active Sheet will be selected, as shown below, and one of the Views placed on the Sheet will also be selected. The most common View used during this process will be a floor plan, but all views are supported.
  3. If the selected View has an assigned Scope box, the Scope box name will be listed, and optionally you may use this checkbox to apply the Scope box of the Alignment View to all of the selected Views.
  4. When the Alignment View is a plan view, the option to use model coordinates will be checked. See below for information on choosing this option. 
  5. Next, after selecting the Alignment View, refer to the right-hand side of the dialog to complete the process by selecting the Views to align.

Choose the Plan View Alignment Method

Plan views have the option of aligning by using model coordinates as shown above. When this option is unchecked, the plan views will align by their viewport centers. Use the model coordinates for views that are stacked vertically, such as a 1st and 2nd floor or ceiling plan. Uncheck the box for organizing sector, unit plans, or other plans that do not exist in the same location relative to each other.
