Whats the best way to imbed a tag in a custom family? I have created tags using the generic annotation template and loaded them into the tags dialog- this works, but you have to tag each time you place an object. I have also tried to use the symbol tool in the family editor to imbed a label onto an object- I like that the tag comes into the project with the object- but, the text of the label doesn't scale correctly in every view. What I want is for all my components to be like doors and windows- as soon as I choose a component the tag appears as I place it.

Am I missing something in the way I am setting up my generic annotations? Or, do you have to place your tag for everything except doors and windows?

              Thanks

Hi, you can assign tags after you have placed your items in the project by loading the appropriate tags (there are tags for windows and doors loaded by default into your template file, but you can load tags for every category you're interested in), and using the assing missing  tags into the draw design bar. You will asked to select which category you want to tag, and which category you're allowed ( if the tag for a specific category is not loaded, the category appears grey out).

That's very quick! you don't have to specify any tag into the family definition, because tags can read the properties from the geometry of the item, and set automatically the correct values to show up in the project, with the right settings even for the style of the text etc., that you can edit separatly in yuor project.

 

Hope this help you a little bit.
