I am using Revit Building 9.1 and made the self taught switch to Revit from AutoCAD well over a year ago now.  Through a little perserverance and help from the forums I have been able to get the hang pretty much every thing I need it to be able to do.  It wasn't until just recently though that I suddenly realised one seemingly significant difference that I have not been able to find an answer to.  So here goes...

In AutoCAD I used to draw a 2D cross section of a house in model space that would include all the detail components (purlins, nogging, building paper etc) down to the finest detail.  I would then simply viewport that into each drawing sheet at various scales depending on what I wanted to show (1:50 for whole cross section, 1:10 for details etc).

In Revit, I cut a section (set the scale to 1:50) and proceed to add the detail components as above.  Then when I want to produce a 1:10 detail of the eaves for example, I put a call out around it but the trouble is that the call out only displays the original model outlines and I have to add the detail components AGAIN and keep on doing this for every call out from the same original cross section.

Am I missing something very fundamental here, or is this the way Revit is supposed to work?  It seems ridiculous to me that we should have to draw any given item more than once.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you have finished adding your detail components in one view, simply widow the view, filter for the detail components, notes, dimensions that you want, copy to clipboard, switch to your other views and paste "same place".  Don't worry about the scale, everything will be in the right place and scale.

Thanks for that.  Yes that makes sense and I have done it that way before as well.  But doesn't that mean that the new details are just a "copy" and if you make any changes to the original they will need to be copied across to the call outs again?  Just does not seem to be a very elegant solution to a very common situation.
