A quick way of altering the visibility of modeled elements in a Revit Project is to use the View Properties, Display Model parameter. This will allow you to alter the appearance of all Model elements, leaving the Detail elements unchanged. All without having to alter the Visibility Graphics dialogue box.
In your orthographic views properties, the Display Model parameter allows 3 settings.
Normal – which will show the modeled elements as specified in their Object Styles and Visibility Graphics.
Halftone – sets a halftone appearance to all modeled elements.
Do not display – will turn off every modeled element, leaving just the detail items. This is a great option to see what has been modeled and what is detailed.
