Revisions on Sheet Dialog

This dialog lets you have some additional control over the visibility of Revisions in the Revision list on a sheet (assuming your title block family uses a Revit revision list).

If you hide a revision cloud in a view using the right-click option "Hide in View > by Element" you'll find that the revision is also removed from the listed revision on the title block. You may not realize it until later if you are hiding them in the view and printing them out later (ouch).

If you do hide them this way then just remember the Revisions on Sheet dialog, you can turn them back on there!

"Hide in View > by Element" does indeed hide a single cloud and removes the entry from the revisions list. But "Hide in View > by Category" seems to hide all clouds but keeps the entries in the revisions list.

I would LOVE to have a way to mass update these values for all sheets in our model. Does anybody have a way to do this? It seems to me it could be a very very simple matrix with check boxes; sheets down the side and revisions across the top.

Tim, that's what I want too. I believe the pre-2014 we could change the revisions for all sheets at the same time.
Our firm issues whole sets at a time. If we issue an individual sheet it is as an ASI. SO when I move from Revision 0 to Revision 1 I would like all my sheets to move. Right now, however, I am having to go to each sheet and check that it has moved to Revision 1. This seems weird to me. Our project revisions are set to "by project" and not to "by sheets". Why won't it update all my sheets at the same time?
