I am new to Revit and kind of learning it as I go.  The firm I am at would like to see the issued boxes inside the sheet index to be larger than what they currently are (see image . . . we want the small black box after the sheet name to be larger)

Is there a properties or parameters area of the sheet index where I can change this?

Second question . . . we would like the index to be a fulling closed box, and currently there is an opening in the box on the line that says Rail Shed in the image.  To close things off we just draw a line in on either side.  Is there a way to close this gap through the settings/properties/parameters?

Oh . . . if you can dumb down any of your answers that would be great.  I don't need all of the code that might go with this , , , just go to this tab, this pull down, adjust settings.  CryingRevit for Dummies)

Thanks!

Here you go:

The only settings you have for schedules are in under the appearance tab of the schedule properties - see attached.  That's it!

 

If you don't want this, then you can turn off grid lines and add what ever you want on the sheet - but it will not adjust or move with your schedule.

Well that was just too easy . . . worked perfect for filling in that border.  Thanks!

So, what about the solid black boxes that indicate which sheets are being issues?  Any ideas for that?

Not sure what the black square is.  Do you mean a character like ■ ?

Run charmap - copy the character and ctrl-v - paste it into your text fileld in your schedule.

yep, that is what I mean . . . if you look at the index we use a black square to mark off the sheets included in that issue of drawings (some places use and x some use a circle)

Anyway, the Sheet Index Schedule has a pull down to place the black square.  The only choices are black square or blank.  The higher up people want the acutal size of that square to be larger, but I cannot figure out how to get into the properties/settings for that portion of the schedule to change the size of the square.  CryingI wish it was a copy paste thing, but it is already preset to a pull down)

It probably IS just a charmap character and all that needs to be done is increase the font size.

Thanks for all your help.

Sorry but your only choices are what is available in the Font that is used.

Perhaps an X is a better choice and is also recognized as a standard mark.

If it were up to me, I would go with a simple X . . . but that choice comes from higher up.  I did figure out a way to "fake it"  Made a view that is just black boxes the size he wants and put those in on the sheet and leave the cells on the schedule blank.

 

Thanks for all of your help!
