View tags are the symbols that represent other views or drawings, such as elevations, callouts, and sections. For example, in a floor plan, the following symbol indicates an elevation.
For more information about view tags, see View Tags for Sections, Elevations, and Callouts.
You can control whether these tags are visible in views based on design options. For example, if a section view applies only to Option 1, the section tag should not appear in a view that is dedicated to Option 2.
The visibility of a view tag is determined by a property called Visible in Option.
- If you create a view while editing the main model, Visible in Option (for the view tag) is set to All. The tag is visible in the view for all design options.
- If you create a view while you are editing a design option, the view tag’s Visible in Option property is set to the active option. If you change the value of Visible in Option, the view tag is visible in views for the specified option only.
For example, if you create an elevation to display a particular design option, you may want to specify that its elevation tag is visible in a floor plan that is dedicated to the design option.
