A few small changes that would help revit speed and functionality immensley:
1. If you are in a detail view, could you please add the option "add to sheet" to the right click menu. It would save an immense amount of time from the current drag and drop options.
2. a simple hyperlink tool that would allow you to make "smart" references to drawings in notes and schedules that would be self-updating.
3. A option to automatically number details as they are placed and rearranged on sheets such as "begin numbering bottom/top right/left"
Solved! Go to Solution.
So it does. Thank you for pointing that out! Ask and you shall receive.
If I am just ignoring the other 2 as well, please let me know.
Thank you for the help,
One question about the view reference tool you pointed out. We have tried to set up a tag that displays the drawing number and sheet reference and for some reason the origin point is set 4-6" below the text. As a result, when you go to move the family once it is imported into the project, you cannot simply grab it without zooming out and finding the origin. Both reference planes in the family have the box used to define origin checked although it is greyed out. Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated.
Yes, unfortunately, that family has that issue, and the distance of that origin point to the reference varies depending on the scale of the view. It's not something that the user can modify.
