FOR WHAT EVER REASON THERE SEEMS TO BE NO METHOD FOR ADDING A BOUNDARY AROUND THE PROJECT WORK WHICH CAN BE LABELED "LIMIT OF CONTRACT". THIS WOULD BE SIMILAR TO THE DETAIL CALLOUT OUTLINE, EXCEPT NO BUBBLE AND THE LINE BEING DASHED. THEN THIS OUTLINE WOULD BE LABELD "LI MIT OF CONTRACT". OUTSIDE OF USING THE LINE TOOL FOR EACH PLAN TO DRAW IT AND THEN LABEL IT IT WOULD BE EASIER IF THIS OBJECT WAS DRAWN ONCE AND MANAGED THROUGH THE VIEW PREFERENCES. CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW THEY ARE DEALING WITH THIS OR IF THERE IS A TOOL THAT PERFORMS THIS FUNCTIONALITY WHICH I MAY BE OVERLOOKING. THE "LIMIT OF CONTRACT" OUTLINE NEEDS TO SHOW UP ON ALL PLAN DRAWINGS. THIS IS TYPICALLY AN AIA CONVENTION OF DRAWING. THERE APPEARS TO BE SEVERAL SMALL ITEMS MISSING FROM THE REVIT PACKAGE TO MAKE IT COMPLETE THAT WOULD MEET STANDARD AIA CONVENTIONS GRAPHICALLY AND WHAT ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS TYPICALLY USE TO ANNOTATE THEIR PLANS. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE POSTINGS ON THE SUBJECT MATTER OF TYPICAL ARCHITECTURAL GRAPHIC STANDARDS. THANKS Post edited on 2006-05-12 05:48:35

i think savage has a great answer. another way is to maybe place an imported dwg into the project that appears in all views. i see a lot of comments about how revit cannot do everything. true. but other cad systems have limitations, which i know are greater than revit. please try figuring it out! also please consider that revit is a world-wide product and it tries to cover all of us, including humble old australia, so your aia standards might be a bit hard to cover completely. another way to deal with your question - not ideal, but maybe draw your limit line as simple 2d, then copy/paste same place to other views. unless we are talking hundreds of views!

The simple 2D was an alternate solution which we tried, it was however just the pain for reproducing it using copy/paste for each view. I will actually try the suggestion by Jsavage. Actually the detail callout is not far from what I need as an outline object, but that to is a closed family. As for Revit missing items, I am not complaining as Revit is the only way to go. Even that is obvious to me since I have been using all Autodesk products since the very beginning of Autodesk as a firm, as well as many other packages. I'm guessing that over the years I have learn to use in access of 50 plus CAD environments including mainframe, mini and pc based. Bob
