I am working on an addition/renovation of a hotel and have set up the drawing to show only the new work in plan. I want to put a small scale plan on multiple sheets to show the entire model simply to point out where the new work will be in relation to the existing project. I have exported an image so that I can place it on multiple sheets with now problem, but if there are any major changes i will have to re-import the image to each sheet. Is there a way to create some sort of "Key Plan" that i can add to the sheets?

The best way to import something into Revit that will keep updating with the external file is to Link it, not import. that way, when you update the file, all you have to do is hit update in Revit, and it waill change it on all of the sheets for you. now, if you want to apply one thing to multiple sheets, you need to make it a legend and not a drafting view, because you can only place a drafting view on one sheet. a legend however, can go on as many sheets as your heart desires

The link to the David Duarte's blog is a method that doesn't work unless you want to create one legend for each unit type or quadrant. Once the legend is placed on the sheet there is no way to change the parameters of the filled regions without changing the parameters on every sheet. This defeats the purpose of having the parameters. You would need too many legends. Also the floor plan does not update when you change it in revit. Ideally, you could at least place the Detail Component on a sheet directly and change the parameters from the sheet. However, I don't think this is possible. Am I wrong? I am just posting this as a user that tried something that didn't work. I am no guru by any means. So is there a way to have one key plan that changes when you update the plan and has a fill region that you can make unit specific for each unit plan without affecting the filled regions of the other unit plans? I know you will need to do this for each floor, but that is much better than one for each unit. Post edited on 2006-10-25 18:00:23

so i went back and tried Duarte's method again.  this time i tried a Generic  Annotation Symbol and inserted it on the sheet directly.  this allowed me to have one key plan file with multiple family types.  it works great, still nothing is directly linked to the changes you make in the model.  you would still have to export to dwg and reinsert into the key plan.  but the advantage is one key plan file and you can insert it on multiple sheets.  so thanks for the head start.
