    You can't schedule a detail line. It is not really an element that is part of the building model. Model elements can be scheduled but detail items are limited.

    Probably the best thing to do is parameterize your lines by having them be a part of a family. In other words, make a line-based detail family, or generic family that contains the line you want to schedule. This way, Revit knows how to track each individual line. You can assign a Mark to the family instances, thereby enabling you to track each individual line.

    That's the $64,000 question.
    If you're need to schedule something, it's probably something real, right? And if it's real, why Detail Lines?
    Detail Lines are rarely a good solution in Revit - except for, um, Detailing.

    My guess is you're trying to figure Exiting for a Code plan.
    Try searching on that. There are several solutions floating around this and other forums.
    Go back to AutoCAD? I'd rather lose my right arm!

    We have in our standard template a line based family for egress paths. We can name the paths, and then schedule them to get the total egress path of travel. Others have used railing families to accomplish the same feat.
