I would like to be able to create/move a tag for my receptacles.  The out of the box receptacle (GFCI) tag is partially in

the wall and I would like to be able to tag the receptacle and just move the tag wherever I would like.  I tried modifying

duplex receptacle by adding a shared parameter, but when I load it into a project and try to tag it by Category, nothing

happens.  If I click on the receptacle to tag it, Revit tells me that there is no tag loaded for Electrical Fixtures, Do you

want to load one now?  What am I doing wrong?  Can you either tell me or provide me with a receptacle with an adjustable

tag, it really seems like Revit would be like this out of the box.

If I am reading this right you are having issues with the location with the annotation symbol and its alignment.  I have had a similar issue with a thermostat sensor.  As it is a nested annotation family you should be able to add an instance parameter to the setout on the annotation family allowing you to move the annotation further from the wall.  As it is an annotation family it scales to suit the drawing scale and as the symbol increases in size it overlaps the wall.  The alternative if you would like to have full control of location is you could create an tag containing the symbol which then gets placed after.  The problem with this options is teh annotation tag is only applicable to the view it is placed in.
