Hello all. I am not really a "newbie", but thought this would be a good place to ask this. I have a residential model and have several design options in it. My question is, is it possible to have text or dimensions and only have it show up in the option that I want? When ever I put in text or dimensions it puts it in each and every option...that isnt what I want. Is there really no way to do this? Or am I completely missing something? I know you cant do detail lines either and I wish you could but I can live with that part. I would love to be able to atleast partially annotate my different options...or should I be doing all the annotations on the actual sheets? Any help would be greatly appretiated.

I am running Revit 2012 Architecture

You need independent views for design options.  Set up multiple plans ...etc - each with their VG design option set to one of your options instead of automatic.  Then annotate that view accordingly.

Oh...that does make sense. Just an extra step, but I will do that. Thanks for the reply.

Well...so I have the different views set up and it does work. However it seems a little counter productive. When I go to the view via the project browswer, I also have to continually also go to the design option bar at the bottom and constantly change it as well...each time. That seems a little ridiculous, am I doing this wrong?

You only have to be in the design option if you want to edit model elements in that design option.  You can edit base model elements and all annotative and detail elements in any view no matter what the DO VG setting is.

Thanks WWHub for the responses. Your help is greatly appreciated. I never realized (or thought) of duplicating the plan views. I guess it is very similar to setting up and using phases. Thanks again for your help.
