Revit 2008

 Currently I am copying from a word document and pasting that into revit when using the text tool. That creates one really long column. How do I make it multiple columns? Thanks.

You should be able to stretch the text box and that may help. Unfortunately Revit isn't strong as a text editor. Otherwise, here's a thread i found on the subject.

Thank you Jarosa for the reply. This is disapointing. What a powerful program. Hard to believe it is missing something much needed. I have hopes for 2009.

Another way to create text into columms is to create a generic schedule. 

 

1) View-New-Schedule

 

2) check the box "Show categories from all discplines"

 

3) select a category you may never use (we use air terminal)

 

4)select the "schedule keys" radio button and name it what your first columm would be.

 

5) then add additional parameters for each columm.

 

We use this for abbreviation list, code list, Sheet notes, dummy consultant sheet index ---  basicaly anything you want to have in multiple columms and neatly tabbed.  Unfortunately you will have to manually type in the information.  But if this is used for multiple projects, you can then save it in your project template.  the abbreviation list took 2 hours but now its formatted and adjustable to fit any space.  Good luck!
