I’m trying to set up my revit project to align with the office standards based in CAD- I know, my first problem. My second problem is trying to get the interior elevations to lay out correctly. Rather than each elevation having a unique number, we group an entire room under one number and label the elevations A,B,C,D. I got around the first problem of repeating view #s by using view names both on the elevation tag and on the individual views. However, I still don’t know how to have the interior elevation tag on the plan reference what it essentially thinks is a blank view title (or rather, a view title without a corresponding view) while still showing the A,B… for each individual view. I know this is a common way of setting up IEs (at least in CAD), and was hoping someone else had experience bringing this format to revit.

 

Thanks!

Sometimes "standards" have to change. 

 

Revit works so well that you need to adapt to that standard and that standard is that every view reference is unique based on sheet and view.

 

... or you can use the "dumb" cad tag and do all coordination like you did in CAD.

thanks- is that to say that there isn't really a practical work-around? I certainly don't want to go to 'dumb' tags, but I also want to make sure that I'm not trying to convice the boss to change standards just because I couldn't figure something out...

No other method - dumb or smart.

I'm having this same issue.  Has Revit not come up with at least a work-around?  I'd hate to dumb down my drawing to adhere to company standards...
