    Unhappy Elevation View Titles Overlapping

    I have used an elevation and used several sides of one elevation and the titles are overlapping. I am unable to find how to move them or make them so they text wrap or something so they are all visible. I am attaching an image of what I'm trying to explain. Anybody know how to make these visible and legible? Having issues uploading files at the moment. I'm posting this anyhow to see if I can get an answer. When My IT gets my upload issues fixed I will upload the image if I havnt had an answer yet. Basically the north elevation title overlaps and hides the east elevation title so you cant read the east title.


    UPDATE: Here is the image, In form of PDF, Of what I had and also what I now have changed it to. I didn't take it as far as you have suggested in creating multiple types. I changed the family and left it at that. I believe this new arrangement will work well enough in almost all our uses of the views with names. I may need to do a little editing to the family later to make those different types to use in a project but for now this will work. Thank you all for helping.

    Under the Viewport's Type Properties, the View Title Family that is being used is listed. Find this family in the Project Browser, under Families » Annotation Symbols. Right-Click on the family name and select "Edit". Here, you can select the title text Label and adjust the margins as necessary. Note that any change made will affect ALL of these titles in the project.



    If you don't want to change all of the titles in the project, then you can create and addition Type:

    In the Family Editor, go to Family Types (the icon with four blue squares on the ribbon) and add two new Yes/No Type Parameters named, "Standard Title" and "Slim Title" (or whatever). Create two types of Families, one called "Standard" and the other called "Slim". Make sure that the appropriate checkbox is and the other is off for each type. Hit 'OK'.

    Select and Copy the Label over itself. Select one of them, resize the margin as needed, and link the Visibility to the "Slim" Parameter, under Properties. Select the other label and link it to the other parameter.

    Load it back into the project and overwrite the existing, then go to the Viewport's Type Properties and create a duplicate type called "Slim" and assign the appropriate View Title Family Type.

    View Title or Elevation View Tag? Guessing its your Elevation View Tag and your showing the view reference along with the number. Unfortunately you cannot move these around as they are fixed within the pointer family. Most folk just use the view number and not worry about the view name, as you have found out it gets messy when the view name gets pretty long.

    Perhaps I should have waited for the image!

    CADastrophe no Your idea of editing the family with work perfectly. All I need to know is how to link visibility parameter to the label, or other way around same thing, and it will be exactly what I want

    Select the Label. In the Properties Palette, to the far right side of the 'Visible' Parameter, there is a small grey box. Click on that to bind the value of the Visibility checkbox to the selected user-created Parameter.
