For standard details I use a drafting view separate from the building model. 

Stored in a details holding file for reuse. Eg attached

Copy and paste details from there into the project and modify to be project specific.

New details are copy pasted into the holding file.  

New details are started over the model. For large projects the detail can be grouped and the group left over the model to pick up cahnges. No model items in the group. Filter to get detail items only. 

Mine are set up for an A4 format for my small works. 

I develop parametric detail components eg look at the bolts and rectangular components to reduce the number of components to keep track of.

One way of going.

Hello.  I work at an architecture firm that recently created a web based start-up company.  The goal is to make Revit detailing easier and more efficient for architecture firms transitioning to Revit or without an extensive native Revit built detail library of their own.  The interface allows access to our library of high quality Revit built details (we currently have over 36,000 and growing), all are constructed with 2-d Parametric components, that can be easily manipulated. You can check us out at www.ARCxl.com (there are no risk free samples available). I hope this helps.

if you have details already drawm from a 2d platform and do want to recreate in revit, you can make a drafting view and place the existing detail in the drafting view by importing or linking it into the drafting view. 

it saves time and if it is not broke there is really no need to replace it.
