When dealing with interior elevations, at our office we typically have a view title for an entire room under all elevations of that room, and each elevation is labed a, b, c, d.... the elevation tag that references these views (the tag that would be in floor plan) would note the detail number, the sheet, and would have a, b, c, d, on each corner. ie: in the center of the tag it would say 1/A10.1.. (the 1 would be over the sheet number). I have seen this done by other firms, I know it is not unique to us. However, the issue is, if I create view titles that show just a Letter, it will not let me duplicate that letter. I would need duplicated letters if I have two different rooms on a sheet (because each room will have 4 elevations) I'm going to attach examples from an old project which was set up in autocad, so you may better understand what I am saying, because this is very hard for me to explain without visuals... first photo is to show what the elevation tag should look like to reference the room, and also shows that the "title" is representing 4 elevations, each labled by a letter. The second photo shows how there will be multiple rooms on one sheet, each with a set of 4 elevations, which would mean I would need duplicated titles of "a", "b" , "c" , and "d" on each sheet. It is important that the letters are referenced back to the elevation tag on the floor plan and updated on it's own if they change... any ideas on how i can get around this inablilty to duplicate title numbers?... I thought about just using text to label each elevation, but dont know how i would have the elevation tag reference them.

Revit is a smart system unlike what autocad uses.   Because the view label is an index to where the view is, it has to be unique.

 

Your question has been asked many times and if you search the archives, you may find an alternative that will work for you.

Here is a BAD answer - I believe you need to update your standards instead.

TBH I don't think I've seen interior elevations sheeted a different way, or at least not in some form this way. Can you show me an example of what people are doing in Revit now? I know I've seen this done even by people who use Revit, so that is really strange to me. thank you fo replying so fast.

If you do numbers, you might see elevations 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 ... etc all on the same sheet.  NO REPEATS!

Each view would have a full tiltle like ELEVATION ROOM 100 and the number in the circle.

Okay thank you for this. I was hoping this wouldn't be the only option, as my boss' don't want to change to this way. I am the only one who knows Revit here, so it is difficult for them to understand.. especaially after coming from autocad where you can basically do anything you want. They just think I dont know what I'm talking about whenever something like this arises. Frustratiing! I really appreciate your quick responses, it has helped alot!
