    Use the linework tool again, but use the <By Category> to undo the override.

    I'm sure I knew about this button at some point. But I rediscovered it because of this post. Made my life easier today!

    So I have had a couple different methods of doing this. Credit to cftrevizo for his post somewhere in the ADSK forum that inspired me in the first place. It involved having a parameter in every...

    There is, unfortunately, no way to do this natively in Revit. It will not concatenate parameters, or convert numbers to text strings. If you are only using the Model parameter in a schedule though,...

    I can say from experience that mapping a GP to every type of family in use in a project is an absolute pain. I've done it, and I've regretted it (though not for doors). Unfiltered/unsorted/unitemized...

    Instead of returning 12'-0" if neither condition is true, define the result at 90░. Try adding

    if(Edge Angle Left = 90░, 12'-0", 0'-0")

    to the end.

    You can do it. The family that cuts must be face based though, which can be a pain to get working properly. I think there are some threads around here about it.

    Not being able to tile windows (WT) while in a schedule is so annoying.

    I'm curious, is there any reason that the reporting dimension shouldn't be "hosted" to the horizontal ref plane that's aligned to the ref level? It seem's like that would allow the OP to use the...

    This might point you in the right direction, maybe? Otherwise, I'm sure Alfredo has a solution.

  12. The new file has never had your shared parameters...

    The new file has never had your shared parameters loaded in, so if you loaded a family that had the order right, the order for those parameters is set and you won't notice a difference. In your...

    Once a family is is added to a project, Revit will always put the shared parameters in the same spot in the properties palette as they were originally. So if those parameters were originally under...

    I'm super disappointed that I didn't realize people were decorating their badges with the stickers they got from the vendors! My Hypar button looks all lonely...

    There's no way to stretch a text object in the project as far as I know. If you just need a text parameter (for what the OP describes, make it type based, and duplicate as needed), you can use a...

    Are there revision clouds for Revisions 2 and 3 on the sheet(s) in question? If there are not, are they checked in the "Revisions on Sheet" dialog?

    The trick to returning text is to enclose the text string you want in quotation marks. For example if(Steel, "Steel", "Wood"). If you want that text string parameter to be in the family, make a...

    What is your goal here? Are you looking to fabricate the part from a Revit drawing? If you need fabrication drawings for sheet metal parts, Revit is probably not going to work for you. There's no way...

    We are in total agreement that all ductwork that's being installed on a level should be shown on the floor plan for that level. I'd prefer to also show it dashed on the level it actually serves for...

    Underfloor Ductwork

    How have you represented ductwork that's below the floor that it is serving? Ideally I'd like to be able to filer out what is below the floor but isn't serving any spaces above. Previously I'd...

    You can adjust the shoulder of the "attached end" leaders by picking the midpoint of the leader and dragging it to be horizontal, which will cause the text to rotate to be horizontal also. It's an...

    It looks like you have both the cut pattern and the surface pattern of walls set to gray. If you don't override the surface pattern, you should get the results you want. That is, unless there's a...
