Autodesk got it partially right.  The revision schedule used to have the option of showing on all sheets or just where a revision occurs.  This should have been a choice per revision and not for all.  Now they offer the option of manually adding a revision to a sheet name even if there is no revision cloud on that sheet.

 

The way we use this, is that the first 5 or 6 revisions issued during the design process - schematic, develeopment, CD, permit, bid, etc......  These show up on every sheet.  Then the ASI, RFI revisions follow - these only show up on the sheet in which revision appears.

 

With 2010, you can manually add revisions to sheet.  Go into a sheets properties and Edit Revisions on Sheet under Identity Data.  There click on the check box of the revisions you want to appear on that sheet.  It's a great work around, BUT you have to go into every sheet and so this individually.  Thats fine if its an addition to a garage, but what if its Freedom Tower?!  I tried selecting all sheets at once and then edit properties, but revisions on Sheet is the ONE parameter that doesnt show up on a multiple edit.  I assume this would require a macro to be built - I guess this is a good time to start learning how to write them.  It would be BETTER to have the option to show on every sheet by revision in Sheet/Issue Revisions.

 

Does anyone have a macro to so this?  A macro to study for a different task? A good source for learning macros and API?  Thanks!

I can't say i've done or needed that ability but, off the top of my head.  I've always just placed a cloud on each sheet that needed a particular revision.  I just put it on one, then copy to clipboard, then paste  -->selected views and select all the sheets that need to be issued with that revision...'

Done.

Thanks.  We were creating "dummy" clouds before to activate the revisions.  But we still had to edit them to be invisible.  I hate workarounds!!  We use the revisions log to show all issuances of a set up until construction.  Then we only mark sheets that have changes on them.  Oh well back to the wish list - as always - thanks for your help Mr Spot!

Yeah I am after the same thing as you, twhisker. cloudless global revisions

The idea I had is to manually edit your titleblock family and place a line of 'dumb' text next to your 'smart' revision schedule, which would have the revision info for this global issue. what do you think?

With Revit 2014 this is now possible through the API.  There is a tool to quickly "UpRev" many sheets in one quick operation in just a few seconds.

Download the free tool here:
