    Is there any technical difference between detail views and a floor plan callout? Because if not, then we're in the clear!

    Some differences do exist. The obvious one - plans and detail views belong to different system families (an will be shown in different branches of the browser). Conceptually all Revit views are very similar. In general detail views can have arbitrary orientation while plans are always parallel to the ground. However if detail view is made as a callout and its tag kept visible in parent view only then it will stay horizontal. You will need to determine for yourself if detail views will work for your needs. I think the chances are good and the attempt is worth your time.

    A detail view has a graphics property that can be set to “show in intersecting views”. If set, the detail view will appear as a section detail in sections and elevations that intersect the detail view callout extents. If set to “ parent view only” this does not happen. A Floor Plan callout does not be set to show in intersecting views.


    A detail view will also list in the Project Browser as that category, whereas a floor plan will list under the Floor Plan category.


    A detail view can be “ hidden at scales coarser than”, whereas a floor plan view cannot.

    Ok - thanks everyone. I think we can create a Detail view-type callout that has nothing but a 4" high letter in the callout head. The tag for this will simply be the view number which will show the sector number of the 1:100 plan shown on the 1:500 plan.

    If the team is ok with this than I owe you all one... again!

    Just so everyone knows: if you use a detail view as a floor plan callout, you can't put room tags in the view! That killed this idea immediately once we discovered it.

    R2009 you can place room tages in the detail view - but I find the best thing about the plan callout is that you have view range/ underlays etc as per normal plans - with the detail views you dont, so you couldnt show, as an example, the ceiling line above.
