Hi I am trying to create  plan and elevation keyed notes can not seem to do that. I do not want to use the keynote specified by divisions but want to have my ownD togetether and ready to pull all my hair. I dowloaded a generic Sheet keynote symbol from REVIT city called NCS Sheet Key note. I can not insert it as a symbol (although revit tutorial guides to insert as sysmbol for note blocks in one of their tutorials). So I inserted as a keynote and selected user. This is where it opens up the 48 divisions to place the notes under view properties.  I say cancel and put my A, B,C for Key value. However it does not allow me to put keynote text. It is all grayed out... When I got under legends I see A,b,c tags created and Keynote text as well but can not select text there either. PLease help I have very basic revit knowledge...

I think what you are trying to do is create a keynote file?

This is fairly basic to do.

Create a new text file.  It sounds like you want to use A, B, C, D, etc keynote designations.

In the text file type the following:

A <TAB> this is a keynote test

B <TAB> this is another keynote test

C <TAB> this should work

Save this file, for the time being, to your desktop.

In a new project, go to settings -> keynotes -> and browse to this .txt file you just created and saved on your desktop.

Now, place a beam, or footing, or wall, or any other object.  After you've placed the object, select the keynote element option.  place the keynote.  Once it is placed, you should be able to select it, and choose which keynote you want ot place.

Finally, you'll need to create a new keynote legend from the view menu.  View -> New -> Keynote Legend.  Click OK for the dialogue box that pops up.

You should now be in your keynote view.  To change appearance settings, and filters, and everything else that make this schedule, just right click and go to the view properties.

You can now drag and drop onto a sheet.  You can also change the formatting of the keynote (width) by selecting it after you've placed it on the sheet, and dragging the arrows laterally.

Make sense?
