Can we show the both room name and room area in the color scheme legend schedule?
Color Code Room Name Area
Red Color Bedroom 500 SF
Blue Color Kitchen 250 SF
Green Color Toilet 200 SF
Unfortunately you cannot show both the room name \ color \ area in the Room Legend for each room \ area instance. Instead I would recommend creating a room or area schedule to list and total each instance square footage.
Too bad - I was looking for this feature just today and came across this thread. I used to do this all the time in Autocard Architecture using "Zones" as a legend and it would show me the SF subtotals for each color coded department right in the legend. It was a VERY useful tool for programming and preliminary building planning. Would be nice to see it again in Revit instead of having to develop a schedule separately and placing on a sheet in a location other than the legend.
I really like Revit....but....scheduling in Autocad Architecture is really amazing.
The only boudaries there are your own imagination.
Revit could and should learn from that.
