What’s in a name?

While it’s great that we can now create new view types in Revit 2013, I’ve found an interesting behavior… if you rename the default view type “Floor Plan” it displays the new name in parenthesis. However, the default type name, when not displayed in the project browser will still affect sorting and grouping. This is a little bit annoying, and might lead project teams to the use of a prefix a la CAD standards (01-Overall Plans,  02-Furniture Plans, 03-Equipment Plans, 04-Enlarged Plans, etc..). Sigh.

If you don’t understand what’s happening, and are trying to sort new Plan types it could be frustrating for new users. Check the video for what I am babbling about.
