So I've looked through the topics, and can't seem to find an answer I'm looking for.

I use the built-in revision cloud and revision schedule for my title block, but the problem is sometimes I also use revision clouds as a way to ask questions or call out notes.  I've made a seperate revision/sheet issue for these cases, but when I use the revision cloud, the revision name shoes up in my shedule on sheets.

Has anybody come across this problem? I wish there was a way to not show certain revision on a sheet (even though the drawing has a cloud on it), or a way to filter them out in the schedule properties.

I've attached an example, I'd like the "Internal Questions" to not show.

There is not a way to show a cloud but not the issue date.  I don't think it is a great idea or practice to do things the way you are doing them.  Revision clouds are for revisions.  You could create a symbol such as a box with a special color to place on your sheets for internal use.

We have working views for plans and some other views in addition to sheeted views.  You can put all sorts of notes on those views without affecting anything.  We color those notes read so they stand out.... like OWNER WANTS THIS _ DO NOT CHANGE!

 

If you don't want to do that then use DWF markup.

 

But I suggest you don't mess with the clouds.

I completely agree, this isn't the best practice. I work for a construction company, and many times our superintendents and layout crew want to keep track of RFI's that come in after revisions/submittals....which is why I cloud them and create an "Internal Qestions" or "RFI" revision.

Does anybody have, or does anybody know if it's possible....to create a line based family with the cloud linetype? I'd like to create a box with this, and be able to drag ends so it at least looks similar to a revision cloud.

hope this helps.  I leave the date and discription blank so the revision schedule doesn't populate any information it will only create a blank row and even if you add the delta, the delta will also be blank.  then if need it, i create a delta but instead of using revision label i use comments and and you can populate the delta with whatever you want without affecting the revision schedule.

Thanks Manny, that's exactly what I've been doing recently.  Leaving a revision blank instead of giving it a name and date.  Just gotta make sure it's always at the end so that there isn't a blank space between revisions on a sheet.

Again, I hope you do a little research with DWF markup.  DWF's can be imported into Revit and answered there as well.

In my opinion DFW markups are the way to go in most instances.

I agree with DWF's.

Kind of weird, in my office some people use Autodesk Design Review, but, instead of exporting the DWF from REVIT, they import PDF of the same drawing and markup on that. OMG.. I can't believe sometimes how people understand the way the software works.

This isnt so uncomon, we have multipal "pre construction" submittals and the contractor wants everyting tracked. once the contract is done he wants to havre the set "clean" including the title block.

Here is my solution:

Merge all the deltas to one (use the latest 100% cloud all sheets have this cloud to set the actual issued mile stone set)

Rename the delta to ISSUE FOR CONSTRUCTION turn off the cloud and delta and set the issue to none.

The title block will have the issue date and the name only, the set is clean.

We just delete all o the revisions from the set through the manage tab.  All of the clouds and revision marks will disappear.
