Working on a radial grid, but the "concentric" grid lines are NOT circular, they are declinated by 6 degrees per segment
How do I make multiple golumn grids have the same grid number? What workaround do I need?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately it's not possible to have multiple grids with the same number; they have to be unique. So you'll have to do some manual adjustment. You could turn off the display of grid bubbles and make your own bubble annotation symbol, and place that instead, or you could cover the automatic grid number with opaque text to show a different number. Another possibility would be to add a prefix or suffix to each number to make them slightly different.
If you would like to see this behavior changed I'd suggest providing comments and a business case as to why this is important to your firm at the Feedback Site.
I hope this helps!
Found a work-around
When editing the column grid number, right click and add Unicode characters, but leave those Unicode characters non-visible.
So, technically, Revit *is* using different column grid IDs, but for printing purposes, we only see the characters we want to.
That's an interesting workaround - I've never seen it done that way. Thanks for posting with the reply!
I tried it but I could not get the same options you have shown.
See the attached image.
I use Windows XP 32 bit OS, Revit 2011 Str. 32 bit.
It's actually a Windows control and not specific to Revit. You'll see the right click option in Notepad or in other program text boxes: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/w
so when I add the unicode, I can duplicate the grid number...but only once per unicode selection. Is there a way to create new uniccode "categories"
