    Curtain System Tag...Multi-Category?

    Reviteers,

    I belive I have to use a multi-category tag to tag a Curtain System. I am familiar with shared parameters and family creation. Can some kind soul give me some bullet points on the method to succefully create a mutlti-category tag so that I can tag a Curtain System and get it's 'Mark' in the tag (or some shared parameter that will function like 'Mark')

    Feel free to correct me if I am wrong with the multi-category tag route.

    Thanks,
    Drew

    a curtain wall is tagged with a wall tag. There is a standard Wall Tag.rfa at US Imperial (or I assume Metric)/Annotations/Architectural. You can use the standard OOTB tag or customize it to look like whatever you want.

    Dave,

    You are right about tagging a Curtain Wall that way, and that is how I do it for Curtain Wall. But I cannot tag a Curtain System with a wall tag. Any other thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Drew

    sorry Drew, I misunderstood what you were looking for. I don't use curtain systems so don't have an answer. Maybe someone else can help?
