We have a thicker line in our View Title than the one that Revit puts into the extention line of the View Title.  Is it possible to lock a filled region of the View Title to the extension line so that the filled region moves with the extension line?  The filled region is a rectangle.  The ends are not rounded like the extension line is if you give the extension line a thicker lineweight.

Thanks

you could include the filled region in your view title tag... however it would have to be a fixed length...  Unless you made new view title types for each length of text.    I dont believe there is a way to have this link to the view title drag...

 

You could try setting its length as an instance parameter between two reference planes and maybe you'll get a dragable extension when selecting the view title.  Not sure as i can't test this at the moment as i don't have revit on this computer.

Everything I tried with a parameter did not work.  I even tried to lock the filled region to a ref Plane and then dimension the plane from the insertion point of the tag.  I was hoping to get a dimension option in the properties box, but that did not do it either.

 If you have any other suggestions it would be great otherwise, I will have to see if I can do it a different way.

Thanks

I just tried it and they only way to do it is with a type parameter.  Which is rather annoying as you would need to create a new view title type for each length line...

The parameter won't display in your view title properties, it will be in your project browser-->Families-->Annotations Symbol-->Your View tag-->Your View tag type Properties...

HTH.

Another option would be to create an annotation symbol that you place separetly on each sheet that has an instance parameter for length...

I got it to work with Family types and a parameter linked to the dimension. I then realized that I would have to create different viewports with the various Family types of the view title in it.  Bit of a pain but would work.  I will see what the senior staff thinks of the options.

Thanks for the help Mr. Spot
