Custom Title Block Labels

267 Views, 1 Replies

I would like to recreate/mirror an autocad block attribute in revit. It's the best way I can think to explain it. In my attachment, the highlighted areas are cad block attributes. I am attempting to recreate our client title blocks in revit. The OOTB choices do not cover all the instances as far as label choices go. A prime example is a (3) line drawing name that has different attributes. I would like to avoid putting any old label in, and just making the text what it needs to be.


Thank you in advance for any assistance.

You can create Labels and then Link the value of them to Instance Parameters (Text) in the Title Block Family, and then you'll be able to select the Title Block in a Sheet View and enter a value for each "field" under Properties.


If you would rather have the value of this Label associate with the Sheet View and not just with the Title Block, you can create the Label and report an unused Parameter (i.e. "Drawn By" if you only use "Designed By") instead. Then in the Project, you can use that Parameter for the alternate purpose (i.e. "Discipline") instead.
