Basic question. I have an enlarged bathroom plan that the viewport is extending well past my crop region. The problem is that revit is attempting to make the viewport wide enough to grab some exterior elevation tags - that I only want on my overall plan. Any thoughts.

Click on those tags and select "Hide Annotation in View"

Thanks works like a charm. Is there a way to adjust the viewport size with the grips?

Why ask ?  Try it.  Check out the view properties - crop region.....

I get the crop region part of the equation. The area I am asking about is the viewport size. The exterior perimeter box that appears on the sheet. The box the revit uses to extend the grid line and bubles past the crop region.

If you make the crop region visible, then click on the crop region box, you will have 4 grips appear.  Drag those grips to change the size of your 'view port.'

I may be getting my terminalogy mixed up. Is the crop region the area in the veiw that "crops" the model portion of the view. The view port is the area that extents outside of the "cropped region" that revit uses to show annotation items like grid line extentions, dimension outside of the "cropped" model element region. The area I am asking about is the box on the sheet that is the outer extend of the view.

Kartyh,

 

Yes you can think of it that way. 

I am using the term view port the same as it is used in AutoCad, the region in paper space (sheet in Revit) that displays a portion of the model space (view in Revit).  Your crop region can be looked at as the same thing as the view port in autocad.

 

Back to how you're describing it though; if you were to right click on your 'View Port' you can select 'Activate View' (Which I have shortcutted to 'AV,' makes life much easier).  This will put you inside the view but still be on the sheet.  From here you can arrange your annotations however you'd like.  Just be sure you pay attention to how it may affect the rest of the model.  After you're done you can right click and choose 'Deactivate View' (again I have this set to 'DV' for a keyboard shortcut... much faster) to go back to the sheet and move on to the next view that needs editing.

 

HTH.
