Seeing Room Tags in Linked Files

On UTSAC we were linking the interior spaces from a WTW file. I had a very hard time getting the room tags to show up. As it turned out, in Visibility Graphics (VG) you have to go to the Revit Tab, and under "Display Settings" select "custom." Under "Linked View" you have to select the level in the linked model that you want to see in the view you are editing.

This makes it difficult to save a "View Template" and apply it to different levels. If you do, you must then go and update the linked view level or you will be looking at the wrong level of the linked model.

Boy that sounds confusing...
