Display Filters and Grouping

If the list of available properties is becoming unwieldy in Revit, Display filters can be used to quickly find the correct properties using Ideate BIMLink.

When checked, this filter will include any system property such as Mark, Comments, etc. This also includes any of the unique Ideate BIMLink defined properties such as the Revision Sequence properties for Sheets or View Orientation.

Project Parameter
When checked, this filter will include any user-defined Project parameters.

Family Parameter
When checked, this filter will include any user-defined Shared parameters.

When checked, the text added within the textbox will be used as an additional filter criteria for the Available properties list.  In this example, only properties that include the letters "assoc" will be displayed.

Display Grouping
When checked, this will display the list of Available properties by grouping the properties under the same headings that Revit uses within the Properties palette. This can help distinguish between duplicate parameter names, such as Adjust for Mullion Size, which applies to both the Horizontal and Vertical Grid parameter groups as shown. Structural Trusses are another data category that contains several duplicate parameters and can benefit from this option.
