Much respect to the genius who can solve this one...

See attached images.The first image shows our  company's standard section-head (drawn in AutoCAD).

I've created the section-head in Revit, along with two labels; one being the section-number inside the triangle; and the other being the drawing-sheet the section appears on,(aligned to the section-line). The second images displays the revit-drawn section-head.

The third image shows how the section-head is displayed after being loaded into the Revit-project. The section-number text needs to be fixed inside the trianlge (but kept readable ; ie. horisontal); and the drawing-sheet number label-text needs to be aligned & locked to the angle of the section-line. I cannot find any way of doing this (ie. locking a text to a point, or locking it to a fixed position in relation to a line with a changeable angle). No matter what I do, each time the section-line is at a different-angle, the label-texts are only shown in fixed relation to the original section-head start-point.

Can anyone solve this one?

This may be a stupid question but have you made a section head from scratch or have you just modified an existing one?

I've tried both. Doesn't make any difference. The text / label remains the same.

Somehow there has to be a parameter to rotate the text/label to remain aligned to a line...

Thanks, WWHub. I guess there's no quick-fix for this one, then. Cheerio.
