    Default Same detail - multiple sheets

    There is an iso-detail view I want to use on six separate sheets with the same title. Revit is making me copy the view 5X, and the titles then read "(copy 2) of Detail View". I can live with copying the view six times, but I really need the titles to all read simply "Detail View". Any ideas how I can work around this?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Select a view in the project browser, right-click and select ELEMENT PROPERTIES. In the IDENTITY DATA section there is a field for TITLE ON SHEET. Change that to whatever you want; in your case you would change it to say Detail View. This applies to any view (floor, detail, callout, etc...)

    Matt is absolutely right. They won't let you have views of the same name but they will let you have views with the same "name on sheet". Additionally you may want to look into dependent views for cases like this so that when changes are made to the detail it will be reflected on all 6 copies.

    You can create a new legend and paste the content of the drafting view into the legend, then place it on as many sheets as you want.
