I have been trying to learn how to do the "work-around" for door legends in revit that allow you to create a smart-tag for the door type mark. It's sort of like fooling Revit into allowing me to create a door tag for legends by making it think it is a material tag. http://www.aecbytes.com/tipsandtricks/2009/issue44-revit.html However, I need to know more about how to get the shared parameters to work in order to follow the steps in this link. Has anyone has any luck with this?
If so, please share! I'm pretty frustrated that I can't create a legend for my door types that is smart (the way Revit is supposed to be.) -Thanks... -Anne
Thanks, I am going to download a trial version of the Dynamic Legend add-in. I don't care for the phasing or design option methods because then when we send out our model to our consultants they tend to turn on all parts of the project and it gets sloppy. I haven't used assemblies yet, and we usually work on larger projects so I'm not sure how well it would work for us. Thanks for your fast response. I think that fixing the limitations on Legends should be a top priority for Revit software. Otherwise, they should just completely scrap it and forget that it ever existed.
Dear Revit software engineers - THIS is the information that accompanies a door schedule in just about EVERY major architectural bid package. (See attachment) All I want to do is tag my door type mark in my legend. That's it!
