I hate the project browser in Revit. I cut a section, make a 3D view, create a plan view in Revit and I cannot find it. To solve the issue, you should have View Types with a “View Template Applied to New Views” assigned.
This is fantastic for sections and plan views because when you create your view it will fall into the project browser where you would expect, depnding on your sorting method, and it will already have the correct View Template assigned to it.
For simpler browser organization, my preference is to sort by Type. You can add a Phase Filter for renovations.
View templates can also be assigned to 3D Views and Schedules view types.
