Use shared parameters read by Device Tags in formulas to control Tag visibility.

Use shared parameters read by Device Tags in formulas to control Tag visibility.

It would be extremely helpful in the drafting process to decouple 2D annotative symbols from 3D device families and have the symbol be a Tag with a leader that can be easily moved around.  In order to do this, the Tag family should be able to read a shared parameter inside the Device family, but instead of display the value in a Label, use that value to drive visibility settings in the Tag with formulas and boolean operatives.  Right now I can find no way to pass that value along inside the Tag family.

This capability would solve a major issue we have been having on the MEP side (especially Electrical and Systems) with having to show 3D devices in accurate locations to appease architects, but then having to spend enormous amounts of time showing the devices on sheets due to those devices being too close together for symbols to look good.
