Could someone please advise on the best way to show internal wall finishes in plan?

In Autocad we normally show different line styles in different colours which represent the different finishes, and a key. Is it done similar in Revit?

We use a finish tag with leader(s) in both plans and elevations.  You can use the leaders to show the limits of the finish in plan.

We just used a generic annotation template to create our tag.  The finish is type driven so all instances can be found and changed or replaced.

WW. 

I am trying to follow thru with this suggested  approach but I am unable to create the FINISH TAG.  I have a Generic Annotation tag and assigned it to the Material tags category, thinking that I would use Comments, or Description to deliver the Paint code (P2).  This works well in elevation but oddly in plan. 

Can you clarify your tag creation?  And also, are you able to show multiple arrows/leaders in plan?  I've not been able to duplicate your efforts.  I hope that you can guide me with this old thread.
