Hello,

How do you use revit to make general construction notes for residential projects? I would like to create construction notes that include the 'symbol' being referenced. I pulled a pic of google to illustrate what I mean. Is there a neat way for revit to do this? Right now I am planning on creating a general annotation family, multiple types with custom text, thrown onto a drafting view so that it retains the 'tag symbol.' 

Thanks,

Ozren

Why reinvent the wheel?  Revit's keynote system works very well.

Ah I see. How would I go about making a list like the one in the image using keynotes, so that I can see the linework? 

Thanks

The list is developed automatically just like it is for revisions.  In both cases, the symbol around the number will not happen so we indicate what that is in the title header of the key schedule and also the delta in the revision schedule.

Ok thank you again. I need to have the construction notes appear almost exactly like in the attached image so I guess I will have to stick to the cumbersome generic annotations, which are actually not too bad since you can schedule them and modify the information that you want changed in the views.

Why do that?  

 

Why not just add the linework on the sheet around each number?

 

Revit's keynotes work and work very well!  I am always amazed when an office says they have to meet a standard that may result in errors because their standard is too inflexible to use something that is better.

Well, that is one idea for sure. I guess I have to start looking deeper into keynote then. Thanks again.
