I need a little help with my drawing index.  See attached image for how I currently have it set up.  The problem is that the discipline shows up in each line instead of at the top of the respective disciple series.  I took guidance from this thread: http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=7020 I created an "index" parameter to set up the sheet order which works great however, when I add the discipline to further sort the list, it adds the discipline to the top of each line.  Is there anyway to combine the sheets per discipline?

 

Thanks!

Then the discipline goes away completely. See attached.

unfortunately then the disciplines get out of order.... ie architectural drawings (a-series) before the general drawing (g-series).  see attached.

Adding numbers in front of the discipline is the best solution we could come up with.  See attached.  If anyone has any other suggestions, they are certainly welcomed.

 Thanks.

I was having a similar problem but if you create a custom parameter and number it similar to you have for the discipline and then make it a hidden field. Then you have your other discipline field without the number. You have to fill out both fields per sheet but it gets rid of the numeral on the front.

How do you get the sheets in the correct order (G000, AD101, A101, etc.)?

I have a parameter tagged "Drawing Order" on each sheet. In that field you can type anything you want. I have a unique name for each discipline. (0.Cover, 1.Civil. 2. Arch, 3.Struct, ....) Make sure you start the name with a number. Then I set the sorting on the drawing list, to first sort by "Drawing Order", then by Sheet Number. They now appear in the correct order

We also insert another field since we want section headings in the drawing list for each discipline. We have another parameter named "Discipline". In that parameter we spell out the disciplines (CIVIL, ARCHITECTURAL, STRUCTURAL, ...) We change the sorting order by putting this ahead of the sort by sheet and check the "header" box on the sorting tab.  What it turns out like is attached.

Another advatage is you can order your sheet side bar by "Discipline" and have them in order there as well,

Hope my directions were clear enough. Let me know if I confused you.

Can you put a screenshot in of your Sorting/Grouping tab of your drawing list properties?
