Hi, I have searched the forum and the same common question is asked but in relation to titleblocks which I can amend fine.

 

When I create a drawing list (view-->new-->drawing list) I add the parameters 'Sheet Issue Date' and the format is month/day/year. 

 I need it to be day/month/year yet I cant seem to find a way to alter this parameter.  

 

Can it be done or is this particularparameter fixed?

The OTB Revit parameter for sheet issue date is a simple text field.  The sample text is in the dd/mm/yyyy format, but you can simply type anything you want into the field.  It will take any text entry and doesn't care about formatting.

Personally I wish Revit had a true database parameter type of "date" that we could format and do calculations on.

Thanks for the reply, so if I change it via a text I can assume it is not paramtetric and then will not update as things reissued etc?  I will have to keep track of that the old fashioned way?

 

You mention OTB which I assume means out of the box, can I create my own parameter for drawing sheets and format it how I like?

 

Thanks again

Yes OTB=Out of the Box

And yes you can create as many parameters as you want and apply them to view and sheets (and all other Revit categories as well)

The core or Revit is a database that is object based and it allows a great amount of customization of object properties.

See the Revit help file for "Shared Parameters" and "Parameters".
