U can take a Revit model, / drawings, and make a template of it. to be used over and over again. Read your help about creating a template from existing drawings.

Legend components are based off model specific elements that have to be loaded into the project.  As such they aren't as easy to copy from one project to another (like using the Insert View command).  Legends if they need to be re-used are best built into the template or using some of the Revit Addins available to do this.

We have very few walls in our office template.  Instead, we have a wall types project in our library, which has legend sheets set up for each wall category - wood stud - metal stud - masonry - some combination exterior walls...   These legend sheets have each wall type as a legend, fully annotated by material and with wall type mark, stc, UL rating.  Each wall is within an identified boundry in this legend.


To get this information into a project, our project managers open this project along with their project.  They then will selectively window copy to clipboard each wall type and paste it into their project's wall type legend.  This not only brings the legend into the project but the wall type as well.
