hi, anyone know how to overwrite the sheet number and detail number in a callout tag? I tried to make a new one, but it doesn't look like it has a category parameter that let me do manual overwrite. Im using Revit 2012

This is the great part of Revit.  The tags are smart, why would we want to make them dumb like CAD?

 

If you want to make a callout that references an already created view, then do that and the tag will be right.

the thing is, my company is doing a pilot project with revit and we have all the standard details in CAD they we have setup and completed already. I have to put call out tags in my revit plan that reference back to them. And no we are not linking or inserting those cad detail back into revit because they are already done. So all tags are now referenced to nothing. I want to add detail numbers and sheet number manually. I know the procedure to do it properly, but wonder if there is a quick way to just do a manual overwrite on the tags directly.

For now - create a sheet with the same number as the cad sheet and place simple drafting views (nothing but name) on the sheet and reference these.

 

I think the better solution is to import the cad details seperately into drafting views and place those on your sheets.  Then everything is in Revit.  Easier to work on, print, store - everything.

Yes, thats what I am doing now but taking too long and kind of running out of time, same thing with wall section and section details. And my company put SIM. or MIR out side of the call out bubble for similar and mirrord details. I drop them to the same sheet to get the sheet number, but they cant be using the same detail number which has become another problem. An manual overwrite function can basically fix all of these problem instanstly.
