2009 version

 Does anyone know how to make a viewport title with boxes around both the drawing number / sheet # AND the title of the drawing?  The box would need to flex to fit the words?

 

Any advice

 Thanks  AAron

Did it flex in CAD?  No?  I guess you did something else if that is your standard.  Same thing here.

Our title in CAD did / does flex.  Is there a way to grab it and use it in revit?

Did you try?  You can create your own view title and with a parameter you too can flex a line ofr box in it but just like in CAD, it will not flex automatically to the length of the text.

The CAD flexs automatically in CAD,  I have not been able to pull it into Revit yet.  I will make the one and just flex it each time.  Thank you.

you can't flex it graphically, it has to be numerically (feel free to correct me if wrong, but I never managed to figure out a method).  You would have to tell the view title element that it is to draw it's box(s) a certain size... the issue is that the viewport object contains the view title element, and thus there is no way to tell the object that it is a certain size...  our company has found that if you need a box as I think you are using it, just use detail lines and draw your box.

You are right TABEST ... since reference planes are not available in a viw title family, you can not make the box visually adjustable.  You would have to set up a few fixed ... type families or an instance based family where you would enter the number.

 

It's been awhile so I may be wrong but I don't think autocad reads the visual length of a text field so I don't know how the AutoCAD title would be automatic.  but then again ... my memory is getting worse.

Thank you TABEST.  WWhub, I can try to send you the self adjusting title block in CAD 09 if you would like.
