Jerome, Here is what I found. I couldn't find anything that would allow the text from the detail family to show up in the project. So what I did is placed the detail component into the project, then copied the text and dimensions seperately into the view with the detail component. I know that sucks.. but that's the only way I got it to work. If anyone else has a better way to do this, please let us know. Thanks and best of luck!

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

To confirm what rkitect said, text drawn in a detail component in the family editor cannot appear in a project file when inserted into the project. Sorry that I don't know a better way to do it.

You need to make use of Revits detail library. Once you've got the view setup the way you want you can save the view out as its own file for later use in another project. HTH.
