Revit 2011

I have several different room tag families loaded into a template file.  When I insert a room, it comes in with one of these tags in place.  I'm trying to figure out how to change the default tag that is placed with the room to one of the others i've loaded into the project.  Does anyone know how to do this?

 And, while were at it, how do I set the default text style, dim style, etc.  I'm setting up a template for the office and want to make it "idiot proof".

 Thanks in advance!

Nothing is idiot proff and especially NOT Revit.  To use Revit, the opearator has to understyand how the program works and what happens everywhere when the operator does something in one single view.  NOT FOR IDIOTS !


That being said, in many operations, Revit sets its defaults based on what it lears from you.  So to set a default room tag in your template, within the template, add some walls to define a few "rooms".  Now place a room but before you finish, look at the properties window.  It will be showing you what tag it is using.  Change that tag to the one you want to default to then place your second room. 


Now your tag will be set BUT your room count willbe off and you will have two rooms in your project.  SO, delete these Rooms and walls thendelete them from a room schedule that should also be in your template.


The same operation can be used for dimensions and text.

Thanks for the reply WWH.  That worked.

There certainly is no substitute for a good working knowledge of Revit, my goal is to minimize the opportunity for inconsistencies.  (perhaps i'm the idiot for not seeing such a simple solution? ha!)
