Being new to Revit I placed doors throughout my plan, but the door tags do not show.  How do I turn them on and off for doors window etc.?

Did you tag the doors in addition to placing them?


If you did tag them then check visibility graphics and under the annotation tab check to see if door tags are unchecked.  If so check them on to be visible.


If you didn't tag them then you can easily use the Tag All tool located under the Annotate tab.  In your view of choice to see the tags, choose the door tag (under Tag all) and voila all your doors are tagged.  (assuming that door tags are on in visibility graphics)

Hey, I've got a door located on a diagonal wall that needs to be tagged. See where I'm going with this? Anyone got any ideas how to get a diagonal door tag. Revit has only the two options horizontal and vertical. Like Help!

Hey Thanx Boss, Rotating the tag kinda works. In the normal tag mode there are horizontal and vertical options. The Rotate with component check box works but not give options, i.e. dia 45 deg. or 135 deg. We'll work with it a bit more see what works. Thanx hgf
