So this is interesting, I'd created a Paint schedule for a current project. The project consists of three buildings which are created in seperate files and are linked in to the single "overall project" where the sheets are located. The paint schedule is also located in the overall file. The paint schedule was populated/ saved/ printed and a month later one item (a paint color) was revised. I went to print the updated sheets and the entire paint schedule was blank?

The only other modification to the set was that I copied 3d views, to create a paint scheme sheet. On the duplicated perspectives I set the VG so that wall patterns would not show up (it looked a bit messy). Would this cause the disappearing schedule items? All of the callouts on the standard elevations were still in place? ....weird

You asked " Would this cause the disappearing schedule items?"  You have the means to answer this question yourself and you should check it out.  If that doesn't answer it, then tell us a little more about your schedule.

You are correct in that I was able to produce the same result. Checking the schedule after each step showed that the cause is not the change in VG, but simply adding another paint mark to another sheet. This causes that paint number to go completely blank in the schedule.  I then have to go back to the schedule and use the down arrow to select all of the schedule items again.

Maybe a supplemental (or better) question would be to ask if someone has an idea why would adding a callout to one sheet would delete the filled in contents of that item in a schedule?

FYI I've just been using the program for about a year now, so I'm still trying to fine tune my processes and just want to get a better understanding of how things are supposed to work. Thanks.

Trying to understand your process....

Are the paint marks added to linked elements but in the main project or are the marks added to the elements in the linked files and onlt scheduled in the main file?  Are these project parameters assigned to a category?  (Not sure what you can / can't do here.)

The paint marks are added in the "overall project" file, on each individual elevation. The only thing in the individual files are the models themselves. I could not figure out how to get the paint marks to self populate, so they are essentially text filled boxes. I place one and then fill in the number. The number corresponds to a paint type in the schedule, which indicates color, manufacturer, paint code, etc.

 

The parameters are "family" and set to "instance" type. The parameter data is set to "text".

You say : " so they are essentially text filled boxes.".  If they are just text, then they would still be there. 

 

I don't think you are telling us everything.  Are these a face based family of some sort?  If so, that might explain your problem.

I don't believe they are a faced based family, at least not as far as I'm aware. It's a generic annotation family.

 

They are essentially text filled boxes but the box type is linked back to the schedule, and the schedule is populated with certain information based on the number in the box. I've included some screen shots of the family, the schedule and how they are used.

 

Sounds like this may just be a "ghost in the system".
