I am wondering if there is a way to edit the way that the room tag figures area. I know that with an area tag this allows you to draw the lines but can you set up the room tag so it automatically detects where the room seperation divides and goes to the outside of the exterior wall and centerline of a demising wall in a commercial space? This is just to avoid having to put a whole other plan on our sheets, to consolidate drawings and have the room tag read the same as area tag. Anyone have an answer to this or has come across this problem before? Thank you for your help.

No way that I know of other than to manually adjust the location of the room separation line. Only area plans have the ability to have the area line location move in response to standard BOMA area types. Also a small point, but the area tag does not determine the area of a room. Tags in Revit are only a reporting mechanism to display the value of fields present in the Revit database. HTH Tom

Room tags will calculate area based on the closest face of the wall to the room. Imagine each wall being completely surrounded by room separation lines. If you don't want this to be the case you would need to select all your walls and unselect room bounding in there properties and then use room separation lines in your drafting menu to define the room boundaries... Very time consuming but pretty similar to using the area lines and tags... HTH.

Thank you both for your responses. Looks like I will stay with the area plan.
