Hey there

When we populate notes that are part of a sequential procedure, I use a keynote schedule much like in the method shown in this link: (

Only issue is, I havent been able yet, to indent any of the sub-text (See attachement)

1.  Text text text

    1.b. Text text text

Does anyone have any idea on how to get around this issue? It is very useful for me to have it in a keyed schedule since I have over 150 unqique sequence steps and I can just use keynote tag on the plan, section and detail views corresponding to the procedure.

I've searched through RVT Help section and other posts in the forum but yet have come to a solution.

This is NOT a keynote schedule as Revit does keynotes, it is just a dumb text schedule like you probably do in CAD.  As such, keynote tags will never be linked with this schedule.


The process shown in that link is a work-around to do standard notes and was first started because Revit initial did not have text numbering with indents.   Now we have that avaiable but we still don't have sub numbering like you want.  Normally, Key schedules are meant to control schedule data for other Revit elements.   This process will work well when you have multiple elements (like rooms) that have multiple parameters that will have the same values as controlled by the indexing key.   But there is no deviation in this so you can not change one individual property.


I really prefer true keynotes - That being - here is what I came up with.

  1. Schedule on sheet
  2. Starting schedule - not added columns.   Sort by sort column.
  3. Modified schedule - hid sort column - combined headers across first 2 columns and changed their names to <blank> then did the same with last two columns so that Key and Comments were on same line.
