There are other people working on details that I need to do callouts for on my plans in Revit-how do I manually manipulate the callout tag without it being associated with anything?
Are the other people creating details working in the same Revit file? I'm assuming you’re setting up your sheets by placing dummy details, is this correct? You could create a dummy tag, but that may lead to confusion down the road. E.G.. Real tag verses not real tag. Can you please provide additional information on the required end result?
There will be sheets done in Autocad that will be included with this set with details that I need to reference with callouts. I know this isn't the ideal way to do it but I'm the only one who can use Revit and the detail sheets will be done by drafters who use Cad.
I would recommend the following:
You can create all the drafting views and callout’s in Revit before you get anything from the CAD drafters. When you populate the drafting views (open drafting view, insert, cad link, browse to CAD detail, click open) and the CAD detail is imported into Revit, most of your work will be completed at this point. You may have a little clean up to do, but the bulk will be handled for you in Revit.
If you follow the above you will not need a dummy callout. Also, I have included my test file, if you are not familiar with any of the above you can practice in my file.
Hope this help,
Re-link my Revit file to the attached dwg.
Well the problem is that they have already created sheets w/ multiple details on them-I've made placeholder sheets on my sheet list for the detail sheets they've made and insert those sheets w/ my set. Like I said it might not be the ideal way to go about it (this is our office's first time to use Revit). I really just need a dummy symbol that I can manipulate.
Just so I’m clear:
It sounds like you are in good shape and you should still be able to follow the process I laid out in my last email.
I’ll be happy to help you create a dummy symbol, but I want to be sure you need it first!
Hi I understand the logic you mentioned, but i cannot find where to "check the Reference other view". Can you point out that?
