I do mostly residential projects, and as such the notes for wall types etc are usually on the drawing and not in a legend. Also the notes are typically very similar from project to project.

What is the best way of importing these into each project? (Please see attachment for example) Should I be setting up tags, Keynotes, copying text?

Thanks.

I would definitely be using a tag or a keynote. The simplest solution would probably be to set up a tag that reads the Comments parameter, and entering the note in the wall type in your template.

Thanks for the reply.

How do I do multiline text in the comments parameter.

I had tried this earlier, but both the Comments and Description both only have single line values do they not?

The method WWHub posted works to force where the breaks are, otherwise the text will automatically wrap to the width of the label in the tag family. When you select the label you will get two grips just like a text object. However long you stretch those will be the max width of your text.

 

Edit: Another thing you might want to consider is creating a new shared parameter called something like "Standard Notes", then you can fill that out instead of using the Comments or Description. It's not necessary, but in my mind it keeps things a little more organized.
