Controlling Viewport Types in Ideate SheetManager for Revit

The Controlling Viewport Types function in Ideate SheetManager for Revit supports the creation of Revit Viewports, which is the name for the Revit element of a View when it is placed onto a Sheet. These are also sometimes referred to as Title Marks. The Viewport type controls the behavior of the View title, line, and other text labels.

When you use the Project Browser to drop a View onto a Sheet, it will use a default Viewport type. If you need to change the Viewport type later, you would need to follow the Autodesk Revit instructions. When you use Ideate SheetManager, you can eliminate the need to change the Viewport types, because you can automatically pre-define them via the Settings, as shown. After launching the Settings you will want to Assign the Viewports to each View Type.

Access the Setting menu for Ideate SheetManager for Revit

Assign the Viewports

Each type of View will be displayed within the Settings. For each View Type listed you may assign from the list of Viewport Types defined within the current Revit project. By default the Revit default Viewport type will be listed.

Tip: These assignments are specific to the Revit project and can be setup within your Revit template file.
