Does anyone know how to get revision clouds to appear in multiple views, rather than just the one it is drawn in? 

I am using Revit 2008. 

Thanks very much!

You should be drawing the revision clouds on the sheet not in the view. In other words... Paper-space.  I would also draw all my clouds on that sheet with the same sketch.  Then you can turn off that set of revisions and control the visibility that way.

We looked at whether to cloud in the view or in the sheet on top of the view a while back and decided on IN the view, but for the life of me I can't remember why. Why do you say (so definitively) not to cloud in the view? Because the visibility can be handled from the Revisions dialogue, I know our decision wasn't based on easily hiding/unhiding clouds. I just can't remember what our rationale was.


For Logan1135, we usually just Copy and Paste Aligned to each view it needs to be duplicated in.

Sometimes we issue SK drawings to Contractors on a smaller sized sheet, showing small windows (dependent views) of the areas on the issued sheet that have been revised.  For instance, if you revise a small portion of a total building floor plan that was issued on a 30x42 sheet, you would create an 8.5x11 SKA sheet and provide small windows of the portions of the revised plan clouded in with a revision tag.  This method is AIA.  But when you need to go back to the full sized sheet and make revision #2, rev #1 clouds will not be there unless they had been created in the view itself.

I don't know the best way, because dimensions and text sync, but revclouds do not sync in dependent views.
