I am doing revisions in Revit MEP 2011 and was wondering if there is a way to clip part of a callout bubble that extends outside of my revision area and off my sheet? more than half of the callout bubble extends off of the clipped view.

So what is the problem?  Not sure I understand what that has to do with your revision.

The callout bubble is existing in my drawing. It has nothing to do with the revision other than the fact that when i clipped my view down so i can issue the revision the bubble continues past the clipping range, about 6'. i need it to clip with the rest of the floor plan but does not. i would just hide the callout but it still needs to be in the view. I hope i am explaining myself a little better

I kind of thought you were into added views.  Why are you doing that when there is a great method available in Revit?

 

First - archive your file for the record.

Follow this thread to create a sketch overlay family.  This sheet places right over top of your project sheet.  You edit the view - bubble it & tag the revision - then place this sketch which masks all except what you want to show.  It is a vignette of your work.  After printing, you can discard the sketch & your file is up to date.  When it prints, it is only 8.5x11 - no matter what the sheet underneath is.

http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=53492&highlight=addendum

 

This works great ... it will take you awhile to figure out how the family works so that you can modify it with your titleblock.  We use both 8.5x11 and 11x17 sketches.

 

The advantages of this method are: 

  1. the original view is modified, the revised area is bubbled and tagged
  2. and I don't have to do that in two separate views. 
  3. We only bubble and tag on sheets - not in views. 
  4. And all title information on our overlay sheet is all automatically read from the sheet being revised - no coordination issues here.  
  5. And... I don't have multiple views to coordinate and that expand my project size.

 

We do not keep the addendum sheet since the PDF is our record.... BTW - Sometimes I even have 2 or 3 8.5x11 overlays for one project sheet in an addendum....

 

We number our sketch sheets for addendum's and bulletins using the original sheet number with an extension.  The sheet number is read from the original sheet by the overlay - the extension is manually added.  I don't worry about duplicate sketch numbers from addendum to addendum.  The addendum or bulletin number takes care of that.
