The project I am currently working on is so large I have divided the floor plans into three different areas. I have used the crop region option to crop these areas, but I am having a problem. The keynotes and the room tags ouside of the crop regions are displaying. I have keynotes and room tags in the isolated crop region area, so I do not want to turn this catergory's visibility off. Any suggestions?

We also have text with leaders showing up outside the crop region. Not sure what the solution is besides simply deleting the extra notes. Post edited on 2006-01-10 16:39:06

Revits rules are that annotations, dimensions, tags, text etc (anything not part of the "model) are view specific. This presents new and different ways one has to approach a bulding that needs to be split up for plotting purposes. Our methodology is to work on one "master" view of the floor as long as possible before the required split. Once we get to the point of splitting, then we duplicate the view with detailing (a Revit option) as many times as we need views, always preserving the "master" view. In each split view we then reset the crop region and delete the un-needed annotation, tags etc. Since Revit is a database it is important to understand that contrary to CAD packages, the room and other tags do not define the properties of an object, but rather just report the properties of an object. This is what allows you to delete the tags outside your crop region as deleting them does not delete the room information unless it is the last room tag and then it will give you a warning as rooms can exist without even being tagged. A more advanced approach would be to group the tags and annotations for each crop region and copy those groups from the "master" view to each cropped view. In your case you would have three groups in hte master view and one of each group in the cropped view. To make changes to a group you would have to be in a group edit mode, but then all changes made in either the master or cropped view would be reflected in both since they are the same group and would update.

I like the group tags, annotations, text, detail lines idea. That makes coordinating the master plan with the smaller plans so much easier. Thanks.

I like the grouping idea too, but tags dont group and then you have the problem that text is placed differently at different scales. I have found that it is best to decide exactly what information each scale of drawing is to convey.
