Hey there Revit Guru's, I am making a tittle block, and i am on the revision section, and the company i work for does not do "entire packaged" revisions. The Revisions we get are mainly sheet specifc. therefor i modeled-lined out a revision chart in out title block, and have a 1-10 text with a Yes/No parameter for each of the numbers controlling the visibility of each number. I have gotten that far...

... the point where i am at now, is making a "Current Revision" shared parameter so i can reference it in the projects sheet list. i have attached the formula i made for the family exlusively, the issue is that i cannot reference it in a schedule now, or sheet list. Therefore i wanted to make a shared parameter that i can do the same thing with to replace the regular parameter i have shown in the attched image, but when i go to add a parameter, its greyed out in the RFA.  Is there a way to acomplish this?

*NutShell- Is there any way to reference a shared parameter in a formula for a RFA?

This isn't CAD.  You have two setups available in Revit and it is all explained in yor HELP:

http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2014/ENU/?guid=GUID-182323BA-8A69-4167-AD92-573079BA9D09

Revisions by sheet or by project and the only time a revision will show on a sheet is if there is one or if you set the revision to show under the sheet properties.

 

Please look in your HELP.

We are a contractor company. And to make a new Rev in the project for everytime a Sheet-exclusive revision is required, clusters the Revision Menu, and is impractical. At that point we are better off just placing in text. The drawings we put out are fabrication drawings, so each sheet is abreed of its own, not a bundle-type-release.

 

A good resolution, or another way to word the question would be. Can i make a custom parameter for the revision menu to incorporate?

... Nevermind i figured it out. YAY! I had to think outside of the box a little bit, but. In my title block i have a revision chart that references the revisions of the project. The numbering was our issue, becuase you cannot have multiples of the same number in the revision menu. Therefore i just changed the parameter in my revision chart in my titleblock RFA to "Issued to" and type in what number i want for that revision. and when i need a new revision, just add it the project, and cloud the sheet, and the revision chart updates, and with this method i can traack all the sheets within the project, and what revision each sheet is on.

it took a while but i got it.

I don't think you understand.....   Revit already does what you want.   From your HELP:

Numbering Per Sheet: Revit numbers clouds relative to the sequence of other clouds on the sheet. For example, suppose you create revisions 5, 6, and 7, and tag revision clouds for them. When you add views (containing the revision clouds) to a sheet, the cloud created for revision 5 is numbered 1, the cloud created for revision 6 is numbered 2, and the cloud created for revision 7 is numbered 3.  << I Believe that is exactly what you want.

Ah i see. The vocabulary was confusing to me there. Sequence, and numbering. It all makes sense now. Thank you great sensei. =).
