Adding a Footer to Revit Schedules

I'd like to include notes at the bottom of my schedule through a footer. It's not a panel schedule, its just a regular schedule. Everyone says it can't be done, but if you have any thoughts, please tell me.

 

Thanks

This is a feature I would love to see added to the program.  For now I have jsut had to do text under the schedules.  Not much help.

Yeah, thanks. Looks like we'll be making a detail and dropping it behind the schedule for now

I found that using a Key Schedule worked pretty well for notes. If you go to Ribbon > View > Schedules > Schedule/Quantities, you can opt for 'Schedule keys' in lieu of 'Schedule building components'. There you can add the fields Key Name and Comments. All you do then is add rows as required and fill in the notes. It is more manageable then simple text, I think. I tinkered around with the formatting and have gotten it to look pretty good (for Revit). In fact, that is how I have done our general notes.

 

But actually having a footer would work so much better...

The key schedules work great for the general notes per sheet.  I just use the ceiling category since we do all MEP.  I am just hoping for more formating for the schedules in a future release.

We'd love a 'notes footer' for schedules too!
