Can’t edit the room tag,

Can’t edit the room tag,

 

It is very confusing when it comes to edit families in the Revit. For example, the tag of the room has a “rectangle” but in the edit mode I can’t find it.

 

Where might be my mistake?

 

Thank you

 

Best

 

Jamal

Access the Visibility/Graphic Overrides dialog from within the Family Editor. So press "VV" while you are editing the Room Tag family.

This one has confused many. The most likely problem is that the Annotations are turned off in the Room Tag Family. See image below.

? Visibility/Graphics Overrides is probably the most commonly used dialog interface in Revit. The default keyboard shortcuts are "VV" and "VG", or you can find it on the View tab of the ribbon, or in the View's Properties. You then have to switch to the 'Annotation Categories' tab.

Many thanks for the very informative answers.

 

I check it on but still the rectangle doesn’t appear when we are the edit mode

 

What might be the problem?
