General Usage Instructions

The top-level functions of Smart Documentation are Views, Assembly Views, Predefined Dimensions, Quick Dimensions, Numbering and tags, Images, Legends and Data, and Sheets.


Views functionality can batch-create any number of project views for elements that you select in Revit. And newly created views can come already tagged and dimensioned according to predefined configurations.


▬ Here’s the workflow for creating views.

  1. In the Smart Documentation ribbon, hit ‘Views’. This will open the Views menu.
  2. You need to set up the configuration. Select ‘Views Configuration’. 
  3. In the next window, select views that should be created by ticking checkboxes on the left side. You can also change the view type and name, and you can apply view templates and tagging and dimensioning configurations.
  4. When finished, hit ‘Save & Close’.
  5. In Revit, select the elements for which you’d like to create specified views and hit ‘Create Single-Element Views’. Specify the configuration and click OK.
  6. The software will generate specified views for each selected element. They can be found in the Project Browser. If you’d like the specified views to be created for all selected elements as a group, use the ‘Create Multi-Element Views’. In that case, you will also need to enter the view name and specify one of the selected elements to be used as a reference for view positions.


After views are created, they can be batch-updated and deleted.  


The update will create new views if some were deleted manually, and it will redo the tagging and dimensioning configurations and reapply other settings (such as view templates).

  • If single-element views were used, use the ‘Update Single-Element Views’ and select one or more elements that were selected at the time of creating views.
  • If multi-element views were used, use the ‘Update Multi-Element Views’ command. 


To delete views that were created with our software (works on both single and multi-element views), simply select the element and hit ‘Delete Views’.
