Hello,

 I have a furniture tag and I want to add "Typ." as a yes/no parameter for our project.  I've added the parameter in the Family Types dialog of the Tag Family as an instance parameter and associated this parameter to the text in the Element Properties of the text.  When I reload the family into the project the "Typ." shows up in my tags as desired, but the intance parameter doesn't show up in the Element Properties of the tag so I can't turn it off and on. Any suggestions?

 Thanks in advance! I alway get good advice here!

I'm having this same problem and would like to "bump" this question in hopes someone now may provide a solution.  I have found that even when I go into the texts "Edit Properties" and uncheck "Visible", the test remains visible.  I have attached my parameter to this property, so if the property itself does not work, I understand why the parameter also does not work.

 

Any suggestions?!?  Thanks everyone

Same here...just tried to add a yes/no parameter to a piece of text in a tag family in order to make the text visible or not and the parameter doesn't show up.  Again this is an instance parameter...

 

Using RST 2011 - thanks folks!

I had a similar issue with wall type tags. We need to show a number for the height of the wall on the outside of the tag. I placed a lable and had to make it a type parameter. Then I had to create different types in the project, one with the extra lable and one without. When i use the tag I just place the tag and then select it in the view and change its type to one of the types i set up.

It has to be a type parameter.

Try this:

Create the text. Put it in the location desired. Select the text and hit the element properties button to bring up the window. 

On the visible row, on the last colun should be an '=' button. Click it and associate the parameter this way. Give the parameter a name and type.

Make sure it is instance based. 

Load it into your project and it should work.

It worked for me this way. 

If this doesn't  work, please send me the file and I will take a look at it. 

 

Cheers,

RevitCafe, what kind of family did you try this in? It works like that in most places, but not tag families.

TKennedy,

You are right. I did it for a Annotation, not a tag. My apologies. 

ckchambe,

You might want to try making it a shared parameter and have the value for the item be empty if you want it invisible, and have a value if you want it visible. 

 

Sorry for the confusion, 

I hope this other option helps.

Cheers,

The Yes/No parameter will still work, it just has to be a type parameter and not instance. It's a little more complex in that you need more than one type, but it's still workable.

It's true, it worked like a charm when I switched it to a type parameter.  I was trying to avoid having to do that at first because I wanted it to be included in the same tag type, but things could be worse.  Thanks for all the replies!
