    Default linking schedules with type elevation views

    not sure how this is really done but...

    after inserting views by means of legend how can the title be linked to the "type" or "family" in the schedule..

    currently I am manually typing in the "type" in just the comment column...easy to error..

    got to be a better way...

    basically in the scheduals it seems to be conventional to have one column as "type" refering to type of window (slider for example) then show an elevation view of the window (or door). there may only 3 types of windows but many shown on the plan..

    how is the schedual linked to the title of these elevation views of window and door types.... "families" in Revit seem to what "types" is conventioually..

    anyway if Revit is linked data there should be a way...

    Are you talking about using legends when you are refering to "show an elevation view of the window (or door)?

    If legend, there is no way to tag that information...but in another view where you can use a tag..you can tag that information...

    But I might have misunderstood what you are trying to achieve......at least I am trying

    If we werea able to place Tags in legends, then you'd have your solution....schedule the Type Mark and tag the legend element with a tag that shows the Type Mark. Now they would be coordinated. But, we can't do that

    To Tag in the legend would be ideal, but if you want intelligence, you can do what I showed in the example below....elevate your doors and windows with "elevation" and you have many ways to hide the marks from plan views...and then just Tag the doors/windows with the "type" parameter.....as shown below.

    Can't wait until the factory gives more time to the legend views......tags and being able to share between projects is crucial...among being able to use the annotation part of an MEP family...

    I believe this is one feature that needs improvement. Archicad is also struggling. You can include the door elevation with the schedule in Archicad. The downside is the elevation is not to scale, so you cannot put dimension or link a live section of a door. So Revit edges a bit there.

    Speaking of schedule, Can the header be on the side? And how to add a total for one door type (ex. Type D1 Quantity 5). The attached image is the office standard layout for our door/window schedule. Just having hard type replicating this in Revit or in Archicad. Any advise. Please.

    What you're trying to do is not currently possible with schedules. Yes, you can turn the schedule 90 degrees on a sheet, but you have no control over the row spacing (it's dependant on text size). Also, there is no header property to "keep readable", so when you rotate your schedule 90 degrees anti-clockwise, if your headers are set to Vertical, they will be upside-down.
