    Default Structural Notes

    I'm guessing this has been wish-listed already, but I'm really missing Proper Numbering and Bulletting.
    This was in Wordpad in Windows 95 and is a standard in any (decent) forum software.
    How hard would it be to copy/paste what should be a standard bit of code from AutoDesk's large library of programs?

    So I guess this begs the question, how are you guys tackling your various notes sheets with all it's sub-categories and tables?

    thanks!

    Default Re: Structural Notes

    We're using a few work-arounds
    For general structural notes and design critera we've kept these in AutoCAD and just create a place-holder sheet in Revit.

    For plan notes we're using legends with a lot of text boxes. Typically we use a text box for the numbers and one for the text so that the indents all line up without mixing in a bunch of tabs. A little archaic but it gets the job done, I can only imagine this is high on the to-do list for the factory.

    I feel your pain!!
    What I have done (which is too; archaic) have my notes in autocad bring them in as a link on a legends view (but could be a drafting view) and pull that into my sheet.

    The only problem is if you have Romans.shx in AutoCAD and your converting to Arial.ttf in Revit, the text spacing is whacky and you have to deal with it!!

    This is what I've been using for my notes also, It has it's limitations, but it is better than the text editor in my opinion.
