Is it possible to have each revision cloud displaying differently?  My PM has a hairbrained idea that older revision clouds should be either a thin line or halftoned while the most current cloud is big and bold.

You can over-ride graphics per element.....

That worked.  I had tried it before but Revit being Revit it just needed more time to think about it than I had patience for.  Thanks.

Might be a silly question, but is there a way to do this without overridding the graphics ?

 

As an example let's say in the revision properties somewhere you have the ability to manipulate each revision:

Revision 1 - Blue, Solid line, 3pt lineweight

Revision 2 - Red, Dash line, 3pt lineweight

Revision 3 - Green, Dash Dot line, 3pt lineweight

 

The only reason I ask is we are in the midst of completing contract documents for one of our projects and if possible we would like to "categorise" the revision clouds so that they reference to a cost adjustment within the contract specification.

 

We can override graphics if that is the only way to achieve this, but I was just wondering if there is a way to do this similar to how you would manipluate properties for other elements.

 

Might have to put it in the wishlist if this is the case.

 

Thanks in advance.

There is nothing up to 2014 that will allow for that.  You can't even use filters as far as I know.  If I'm wrong about that I'd like to buy a beer for whoever can show me how it's done.

I've just realised I can add "subcategories" to the Revision Cloud Object Style, however I'm not sure how to actually assign these to a revision cloud ??

 

Not even sure if this can be done or if I'm just creating object styles for no reason.

Raja15, did you ever get a solution for this, working with object styles?  We like to have the latest revision clouds and tags colored as red so it stands out and all the other previous revsions go back to black.  Having to override graphics per element will seem to be to time consuming and prone to error. I have not worked with filters at all other than trying to figure out what they are useful for but seems they might work for this problem.

hanbyjm - sorry no we never resolved this issue. From memory I think we had to individually override each cloud as mentioned. Another work around is using the revision cloud tags to categorise but you don't get the visual difference in items as you would with colours. Maybe still an item for the Wishlist in the future!
