I have made a bunch of windows with curtian wall tools now I am trying to create a custom tags for all my curtian walls so they are not all link together as a wall using same same Mark. Like instead of say EW1 for everything even though they are in different size. Basically no share parameter, instead I type in the name/mark manually myself. Any tips? Is there any parameter that I can use that is not shared?

Curtain walls are a wall.  So we modified a wall tag to look like our window tags and that reads the wall mark number.  < Instance parameter.

Wait a minute.....

 

There are two parameter types for almost every object's mark number.  One is instant based and the other is type based.  We Tag using the instance tag for curtain walls.  Thus every one can have a unique number.  We tag regular walls using the Type Mark.

 

UNDERSTAND?

sorry, I am new to revit, so you suggesting to use a instance tag? I normally type in tg and tags everything, and swap when I have to. Is there such as thing as instance tag or do I have to create my own?

Edit your tag - you can see if it is instance or type that it points to.  Change it if needed and save under a different name.

Yes ... the label points to the family parameter that it reads.

 

You can learn more about families by downloading " the families guide" from the autodesk site.

I created a new generic tag with its family type set to instances instead of type, but whenever I tag it all the tag always revert back to wall tag. This is the problem I am having, I just want something that is basically like a dynamic block in CAD where you can drag and drop and label it as anything I want and can be use on anything. a 2D graphic basically.

This is not CAD - It is easier far if you learn to use it.

 

Did you set your tag family as wall category?  NO - I don't think so.

Did you load your new tak and switch to it to use it?  The answer is NO.

isn't it automatic, it will assign the catagory type to whatever the object is. That is why Im stuck with wall type when I tag the CW. But I want to use individual mark for all of them because I use the CW tools to create my windows. Like I said, I am new to revit. And I know it is not cad. My new generic tag I created it loaded in the project family, and I click create instance from there to tag the CW.

Please download the families guide as I suggested.  It would also be beneficial to use the HELP and look at some on-line videos.

 

This program is great but you can't expect to learn everything here.
