    several identical legends on the same sheet

    hello
    i'm looking for a way to insert several legends(identical) on the same sheet
    unfortunately, revit refuses to do this
    i thought that i can use detail item put it's impossible to insert them directly on sheets
    this draft will be used for piping preparing
    on every pipe i need to put this legend (blue surrounded on the picture below)
    any idea?

    Along the same lines: detail group?

    genereic annotation? how would it work?
    detail group... you need to have a scale... BUT i thought about it yesterday and i think it's possible : just need to create text and square on CAD, text explose (Xpress tools) then insert cad file ion the detail family, then i could see my iten (squares and texts) in my fimily whatever the scale of the view (because in detail family, texts are not scaled!)
    what do you think about this idea?

    Revit Generic Annotation family = Block with Attributes (AutoCAD). You create it at 1:1 scale because you place it on a sheet. If you put it in a view it "scales" because it contains annotation elements which maintain their actual size when printed. Many people think of the annotation getting larger and smaller because "cad"...but in Revit the model gets bigger or smaller and the annotation stays the same. Same result different "thinking". I wrote a blog post about this concept some years ago.

    As I see it, there are only lines and texts in the legend
    You can do it in a family of generic annotations
    You must do it in 1: 1 scale
    I tried and it works.

    But if they are only lines and texts, a detail groups is better. I think

    A detail group is created just like a model group, but it contains detail items, lines, and annotations rather than model items.

    If you do it as a family you have to create subcategories in the annotation category. With detail group it seems better.
