    Label in Family

    Hi all, Does anybody know of a way to add a label into a family which reports a parameter? I have a family which, barring some irrelevant detail items, is essentially a long coloured line with a length instance parameter. I need to place this in my plan and would like to have a label built in which automatically displays how long the line is.

    I can create a stand alone tag family and do this as a separate exercise within the project, but surely there must be a way of my family having this all built in and being automatic?

    Any responses greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Don't worry, fixed this within 30 seconds of posting. I've created a generic annotation family with a parameter for the length, loaded that into the family, then if you place it and click on it, in the properties bar, there is a small rectangle next to the parameter created in the generic annotation, clicking that little button will allow you to associate the parameter to the lenght parameter.
