I am having some problems noting a cadd details that have been imported into a revit drafting view.  We were hoping to use some details that were created in cadd previously and just have to note them in revit.  I thought I would be able to add user keynotes to the cadd linework but I can't get that to work for us.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I could get these details noted without adding all the detail compents and linework in revit?

If you are wanting a symbols that looks like one of your keynote symbols make a generic annotaion symbol and fill in the text manually.

If you are wanting a note then use text and a leader.

I think that is the way I'm going to have to do it.  I was hoping we could find a way to get the keynote tags on there because we have a keynote legend setup per sheet.  I'll just have to add text for that keynote legend then.

Yea, I know what you mean. I wish the Keynoting function was more flexible. I have modified the keynote .txt file to fit our company needs but I think it is still limited in its function. You might look up some info on the keynote text file and see if you can modify it to fit your need.

You can add a keynote anywhere - keynote - user  - then pick a spot in space and select your note.  (Don't pick anything) I do it all the time.

When I go to add a keynote - user I am not able to drop a keynote in unless I select something to go with it.  I thought I would be able to but when I tried it out the box does not appear unless I attach it to something.  I've tried starting a new empty project and it won't let me add user keynotes unless I have something to attach it to as well and it works for you WWHub.  Which version are you currently using?  I would realy love to get those keynotes working in those views if I could.

disjwb,

The project I am key-noting is still in 2008 - I've not yet tried this in 2009. 

 

I guess I had not realized it but I was always over top of something when I did this.  No matter, as a work-around, add a "microdot" detail element somewhere andthen keynote that with as many keynotes as you need to using a free end.  You can then move these keynotes to where ever you want.  NOTE DON'T DELETE THE DOT!

That will work!  I rather do that than go back and type out the schedule.  Thanks for the help.

Somewhat off topic, but where can i find this "microdot"? Need something that is easily transferred from sheet to sheet that i can align my viewports with and have them in the same spot from sheet to sheet.

One thing you could do is draw a detail line in one view / sheet, select it and then copy to clip board (ctrl c).  Then activate the new view / sheet and under edit menu go to paste algined, then you have a few options same place and current view.  Hope this helps.
