Does anyone have a quick suggestion for making a keyplan that shows up in the lower corner of my floor plan sheets? I need about 12 of them. The only thing that I can think of is to make a new floor plan for every Key Plan that I need. This would work, but it is going to make my Project Browser very crowded. Any help is as always appreciated. ArchWestCY

I found this elsewhere so I can't take credit for it. 1 - Export your base plan perimeter to dwg 2 - Create a detail component ....File ..New...Family...Detail Component.rft 3 - Import your dwg 4 - Add a yes/no parameter for each portion of your plan 5 - Draw filled regions for each portion & assign a yes/no parameter to each. ( ...go to the filled regio's properties - find the visibility checkbox and on the far right will be a tiny grey box. - check this and select your yes/no parameter. Do this for each region) I assume each yes/no will require a differnt name.... 6 - Load the detail component into a legend view - set the scale & place on your plan sheets.

I have used JPEG images for keyplans which can then be placed directly on to a titleblock. Inside of Revit area plans can work well for keyplans and of course there is always a drafting line option in a legend view. Tom

i think i like this better than the other ways i've seen... but it seems i have to create a keyplan for every part of the keyed plan??? - after i make parameters and put the plan on the sheet, i can't turn areas on/off. i can only do it in the legend view. this doesn't seem right...

WWhub-

I tried the idea you posted, but it caused me a ton of trouble when i had different filled regions that needed to be turned on and off in different sheets, based on the floor plan zone. One work around i did was to create a symbol (similar to a north arrow) I created the new symbol family and then followed all of the steps you mentioned with the parameters and such. The good thing about the symbol is you can place it directly on the sheet without having to create another view. You cannot do this in the sheet view with many of the other revit families. I also created the placement point at the corner of the sheet so when i place the keyplan symbol, it is always in the same place. Thanks for your thoughts, they helped me get where i needed to go, just thought i'd add in my experience.

We place an outline of the floorplan on the titleblocks we use, and use parameters to control which filled region is on depending on the titleblock type.  Works pretty well.
