Personally, I don't like referencing back and forth at all. It's a lot of work to keep up with when you have about 100 sheets and I'm almost guaranteed to make mistakes. One Engineer told me that the flow of info is intended to go from plan (general) to detail (specific) because we think in broad terms then try to understand the details. Communicating back and forth can cause mistakes and misinterpretation. But if we have the ability to show it both ways, I can understand why the client wants it. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to change anyone's mind. I don't speak to the client and I hear the client is pretty strict on their standards and I'm not the Revit coordinator.
What do you do with the view title?
I added the reference sheet parameter to the titles too but it only references the first sheet that the section is cut on in the order of the sheets in the project browser. I found this article that explains how Revit interprets what the reference sheet is: Referencing Sheet and View Issues
How can it show all of the sheets/views where the view is called out on?
Our plan is to wait until the very end and add the rest of the referenced sheets under the original referenced sheet in the tiitle with dumb text. It hurts my soul too but I don't know what else to do.
I completely agree with you though. I hate the "because we do it that way" reason also. We can do better than that.
And once I started using Revit I never looked back to dumb cad. Hahaha.
I thought of another solution but I don't like it. I call it the fake sheet technique.
I used real drawing # to make it a little easier to explain. For this example section A4/S303 CUT ON S130.
- Create fake sheet
- with duplicate sheet number "S303"
- with blank character
- Change Sheet Discipline to "Ref" to keep it organized
- Create new section
- Change view name to "A4/S303 CUT ON S130"
- Change view purpose to "S130 REF" (Cut on sheet number) to keep it organized
- Place new section on new fake sheet
- Change detail number to match original cut
That's a pretty ugly work around but it would work! Haha.
