    Default Exporting Floor Plans from Revit (Text)

    When I export a floor plan from Revit, how do I get the text information to appear? The text icon is grayed out in Navisworks. Is this because it exports as a 3D floor plan? Is there any way for it to appear 2D in Navisworks?
    Thanks,

    We've found that the only way to get text from Revit to Navisworks is to go through AutoCAD.
    Essentially, we exported our column grid to AutoCAD and then brought the AutoCAD dwg into Navisworks - all our column grid numbers came in just fine.

    I also export to a 2d dwg to get room names

    Yes, this is the solution for Revit Architecture 2009. Is Revit Archtiecture 2010 still having the same problem?

    Exporting the DWG of the floor plan works in 2010, however, it will come over in those pretty DWG colors but it can easily be changed.
