Sort the draw order of annotations

Sort the draw order of annotations

Hello Autodesk,


Please add/implement the feature in the link below for REVIT annotations (ex: dimensions/tags, etc...)


Sort the draw order of details



1 Comment

Detail families allow us to control the draw order, but annotation families do not.  The only way to control draw order in annotation families is to use nested families and copy an paste them until they are in the right order.  Even then, you what shows in the family editor environment is the inverse of what is going to show in project environment!  So you have to invert the draw order in the family for it to appear correctly in the project.  This video shows it all:


Please add "Bring to Front" and "Send to Back" buttons to the annotation families and make it so the order shown in the fmaily matches what it will show int he project.
