I'm a little late to the thread but its still unbelievable that we can't do this.  I'm wondering if using a dummy generic annotation that looks like a section/elevation/callout with labels by type would be simpler.

I don't think the dummy tags (old school like AutoCAD) would be a wise choice.  It presents more opportunities for errors.  I agree with Tom's recommendation to export as a CAD file and link it in.  It's a bit of a pain with a larger project that has multiple plan segments, but it reduces the opportunity for errors that comes with the "ghost" sheet or dummy tag options.

Arcman98 - READ ALL OF THE ANSWERS ON THE PREVIOUS PAGE!

Revit CAN show the tags from linked files! ... and you don't need nor should you export to CAD.

I've read through this thread and found it interesting and helpful. I have a shell file from a consultant with sections, elevations, etc. We have an interiors file with the plan sheets. When I set in VV for the shell file to display "by linked view" then I can see the text and dimensions from the shell file, but do not see any sections or elevation tags. This sounds similar to previous posts. And like one person said, for now we've gone the route of exporting a dwg from the shell file to link in the section marks into the interiors file.

Any one know now in 2014 if we can show sections and elevation tags from linked models?

I could swear that when I answered in 2010, I could see the view callout tags using the linked view but maybe it was only all the other annotations which I know you can see. 

 

But this question is about callout tags and TomDormer gave the workaround for doing that in 2010.   No reason to export, just create the views and place them on the appropriate sheets.  If the views are placed on sheets in the linked file and you will be printing from that, then you are done.  If those views are not on sheets and you will be printing from your file, then each view has to also be set up as linked by view to the correct linked view.   If those linked views have additional callouts..... then you have to do that again.   <<< This is why I advocate that you only annotate in the file you will be printing from.

This issue is still not fixed in Revit 2020, cant belive its a 10yrs old. Section and Elevation markers are NOT VISIBLE in linked views.

I really don't see any problem here but there would be if Revit did what you want.  Learn to use Revit and recognize its strengths.
