Ok I have been all over the map with this keynoting dilemma.  My firm is SLOWLY getting into Revit.  As most firms we use a set of construction notes (aka Keynoting in revit), HOWEVER our notes a more descriptive then simply stating what the item is.  Has anyone come up with a solution.  Coming from the technical side, I understand Revit's use of the CSI spec section numbering format, problem is the contractors I deal with on site could careless, "Just tell me what it is and where is goes"  Rarely is there a project manual in reach for them to look this stuff up.

SO custom keynoting .TXT file is the way to go, but how to a set up a company wide standard .TXT file, but still have the ability to add more specific instructions for individual projects?

Thanks in advance...

It sounds like you are doing something similar to what we did at a previous job. Our solution was to have a master file on the server that would be copied into each new projects folder. Then the Revit project would be mapped to that file. Any edits were done in the project keynotes file.

Yep that is what I came up with.  I had wanted to make it idiot proof though.  It would work so much better if the keynote settings (aka the .TXT file location) was project specific and not a system setting. Then use the system you describe.  The problem I run into is someone not re-mapping the file if they have to work on two or more different projects in a day. I guess we need to add this to the wish list.THX
