No. If you need a filled region, you must do it in the view, using the drafting tab. If you want a continuous filled region across a sheet, you could make a new view (for instance, make an elevation view) and make its extents look away from your project (so that the view is effectively empty). Then you can place that view on your sheet, turn off the view title and line, then activate that dummy view and draw your filled region. you can place your other views over or under that dummy view, depending on the order in which you drag them to the sheet. Hope this helps

I am running 2010, and you still do not have the ability to have a filled region on a sheet. this is a big pain for me right now. does anyone know what causes this restriction, or have a clever work-around?

Why do you need a filled region on a sheet? What are you trying to do?

well i have a full set of construction documents, but i need to reissue a set of them with certain areas of the building 'greyed out' with a crosshatch or shade of grey over them. (for a weird permit we need)  If i make the filled regions on the views themselves, alot of annotations and things are not 'behind' the filled region. (also i dont want to make thr regions on teh views because they are dependents etc.)

I've done a little looking around this morning, and unfortunately I'm not seeing a good way to do what you want to do. I think what you are going to have to do is put the masking region in the view, and the do a hide by element (unless you can figure out a good way to apply a filter) on all the annotation you don't want to see.

Make a view big enough to cover your sheet and do a transparent filled region on it.  A drafting view will work.  Place that on your sheet covering the whole sheet ... ten edit the view in place and cut holes where you need to in the filled region.

WWHub, I tested that very same thing this morning and even if the masking/filled regions are in a separate drafting view they don't mask the annotation.

Sorry - Didn't see you wanted to mask an annotation.  Can you live with verything completely masked rather than covered with a transparent fill?

If you can live with a mask then read this post on AUGI - your solution is there: http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=53492

last night i ended up making a draftine view over the whole sheet and drawing a filled region there. Its working well so far but there are more complicated drawings i will get to today so hopefully it all works out. thanks for all thereplies!

I don't know if you already had figured out your problem and i know it's kind of a late response to you post, but i just saw your issue and there is a work around for this problem.  All you need to do is the create a hatched area in autocad, doesn't matter what size or shape, save it, and then import it into the sheet.  Partially explode and then revit recognizes it as any other type of filled region, and you can manipulate just as if it were in a drafting view or plan view.  Works on both 2009 and 2010

It's really aggravating that so many times the answer or workaround to a Revit problem (regions on sheets, logos with small lines, anything to do with text) is to do something in Autocad and bring it in to Revit.  For a program that's been around as long as this one, it feels like pulling teeth to get a polished product out of it.

Actually there is a work around to get a filled region on a sheet.  

 

Draw a set of detail lines on your sheet, group them.  Elsewhere draw your filled region that you want, group it.  Go back to the sheet, select the group of detail lines and with the drop down change it to the filled region group.
