Welcome to this demonstration on Bonus Tools - View Filters

View Filters allows you to copy Filters and their settings from one View to multiple other Views, including View Templates. This is fast time saving tool that could be effectively used with View Templates. It can be very time consuming recreating Filters across Views or View Templates even when you have a highly developed Project Template.

This Tool is available for Revit 2014 and newer versions of Revit.
