Is there a way to link a standard sheet that was created in Revit into a Revit Project.  I have a Standard ADA Accessibility sheet with various guidelines from various drafted views at different scales laid out on a standard 30x42 sheet that I would like to import or link. 

Before you respond, consider the following:

I cannot simply grab all of the details from the standard sheet and paste them into my project as they were all drafted at different scales at different views.

Yes, I suppose I could copy the individual elements from each Drafting View into new Drafting Views, but that would be a major pain, and I would have to spend the time repositioning all of the views onto the new sheet.

Yes, I suppose I could export the Standard sheet into DWG and reimport into the Revit Project, but something about that seems so painfully wrong.

Any better ideas?

Thanks,

can't you just "import views from another file" and replace them on a title sheet. Or, make a new "titleblock" that actually has all the elements copied into it, you could just have an office standard "ada titleblock"

I'd rather be riding at whistler. or highland. thats good too.

Wow, the Import Views function seemed to work like a charm. Thanks!  I will post if I find any issues with that method. 

Incidentally, I had already tried the "titleblock" idea with the intent of creating a titleblock family complete with details that I could just drop in as a single sheet into the project.  However, RFA files (families) will not allow you to create drafted views which means everything would have to be dumbed down to the same scale on the actual titleblock sheet.  (Either the ADA clearance drawings would be too big, or the mounting height elevations would be too small).

it does allow you to copy text and detail lines to a titlesheet family from a project, but i think thats about it.

We use a lot of legend views that are placed on our title sheet.  Our templates has all of that in the file initially.  Legend can be copied from project to project.
