Some of our sheets have large portions of text, i.e. specifications, code analysis, general notes.  I am just using the text command, but I find the text editor lacking.  Am I doing this the wrong way, because:

  • I have to break my text file into pieces to fit it on a page. 
  • I can't find a way to link to a word processor.
  • I cannot cut and paste within the editor.
  • I cannot find and replace text.
  • The margins and formatting are not much different than a txt file.  In fact this forum has a better text editor.

Does anyone have tips about working with large portions of text?  How is everyone else doing this?  (I know I'm not the only one who has specifications or code analysis on their drawings)

Your best option is to use a word processor - I don't think that revit does text that well.  Cut and paste it into the revit editor after typing it  and formatting it, it does maintain some of the formatting.  You can also cut and paste within the revit editor.  I have always used a seperate document if I need to do large portions of text, such as specifications - I wouldn't use revit for word processing, but a fair amount can be done in revit
