Hi, I am trying to teach myself Revit after using ArchiCAD for some time. Being an Interior Designer a lot of my drafting work is detailing joinery components. Previous experience has told me that it it is too time consuming to build every element in 3D so I generally use massings to create benchtops, kickboardss, etc then do the rest of the detailing in linework. I have got it working fairly well fior the moment but the item I am struggeling with is adding labels/tags to note finishes on each of the joinery elements. Do all types of tags need to be linked to a component. All I really want is an independant label that I can place like a note and change the text. Leaders need to be an optional extra too.

I have attached an image form one of my ArchiCad details so you can see what I mean. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Stacey

I'm thinking a generic tag family that is multi-category should work.

I have tried that, but I can't tag 2D linework with these types of tags, only something I have built in 3D. This would bring me back to having to model everything in 3D that requires a tag; cabinet handles, cutlery trays, cam locks... Way too time consuming when I normally just draw it in with lifework.

NOT TRUE!

Model families can be completely 2D and thus can be tagged.  We also have invisible detail families for places where we need tags or keynote holders.

I dont understand what you mean... Sorry still learning the revit lingo... Does this mean that anything I want to tag I need to make into a family (eg. A circle that represents a door knob would need to be a family rather than just linework)??? Once again sounds time consuming. Can't I just make what I would call a 'Library Part' that is a 2D label in a frame that has leaders as options and variable text?

Hello Stace 

I have recently worked for a company who did internal fit outs, interior design and the like. My solution was to create material tags as so I would put the information I wanted in the material. This gave us consistency in case a material changed it would update all our drawings automatically. I think that is the beauty of tags as something is tagged if the elements type properties change all the tags update. For more freedom you can make the tags linked to instance paramaters and this will give the ability to change individual items. if you want all of that type to change in the project or view you can just select all instances in view or project then they will all change together. Bear in mind that you will have to duplicate this tag for all family types. alternatively I have some text boxes that work well, see attached. these are in 2020 formatt, I can get them in in 2017 if needed.
