As near as I can figure they can only exit within a title block. Open up one of your title blocks and then go to 'View' 'New' 'Revision Schedule'. Add fields to the schedule as with any other Revit schedule. HTH Tom

maybe mr spot's shared parameter idea could help you here? do not know much about it though. as another method, to get a list of things on our title blocks, eg issue list - we just put some text on the first sheet, group it, rename it, and then merrily copy to clipboard, paste aligned same place, on all our sheets. the beauty of this is it is easily edited anywhere just once. plus once in your template, you hardly need to do it again. ideally, yes, would be nice if revit had a title block schedule within project parameters.

Latemore, As Tom suggested is correct. In the titleblock family you can add a revision schedule that will be populated in your project by adding revisions in your settings--Revisions fields... Only disadvantage and the reason we don't use it, is you can only have number issues (not letters) and you can't set it to go bottom to top as opposed to top to bottom.

yes mr spot! i knew that, which is why we came up with the group of text idea for overall issue at issue A, B etc. we like this as well as the revit revision thing as both are quite useful in seeing what has happened. but sir, can you explain more about that shared parameter thing in the project parameters, please? is there a way to emulate our issue thingy? thanks heaps for helping us learn so much so fast.

You could but i wouldn't... Makes for too many shared parameters. But it all depends on how many issues you typically have. We can fill the hole amendments box quite easily so there is often a need to cycle the list. That is, delete the first one, move all the others down and add another at the top. If you don't fill your amendments box then yes i would use shared parameters. Especially if you do your issues by project instead of by sheet, as a type parameter is much easier to change than a group... and no chance of accidently moving it. HTH.

thanks mr spot, i might experiment with that a bit. you guessed right - we issue per project, not sheet, so usually have around 6-7 issues. and yes good idea - the group list is easily moved, or even forgotten if a new sheet is created. i know very little about shared parameters. how unusual - even more to learn about revit!

I have created a work around that may be useful 1.add revision schedule to the title block with the field arranged issued to, rev date, rev No, rev description 2.When adding a new revision - Use alphabetical issue in the -issued to -field (e.g A} Be sure to select the -By Project- radio button so that you can delete clouds and the schedule will move up without changing the rev. No's. Also the number is consistant across the project The revision numbers will not be sequential on sheets but that dosn't matter 3.You can have many clouds with the same rev. No and Issue letter or have more revision numbers under the same issue letter and date by leaving the -Issued to- and -Date- field blank in the schedule. I find this lets me keep a record of issues and revisions even if I have to delete some off the sheet. by turning the cloud visibility on and deleting the cloud A history of revisions can be printed by creating a titleblock with only the schedule, open as a sheet and add all the clouds with visibility off. The schedule won't go from bottom to top but at least the text wraps.

thanks gY very tricky and clever. your method may also suit a lot of people looking for a universal revision/issue schedule. it certainly suits the original question!

Clever idea... You can have it in order still as long as in the titleblock/revision schedule properties you sort by issued to...

This is a very helpful thread. A question i have regarding the actual positioning of the revision schedule in the ttile block family is, is it possible to rotate the schedule to be oriented vertically instead of the default horizontally? Our title block is designed to be on the right vertical side of the page and i have not found a way to rotate the schedule to match the rest of the title block. Thanks in advance

a little unrelated, but does anyone know how to turn off revisions so that they do not appear at all in the title block?
