However, when trying to create new sheets, I constantly have to assign the categories to the sheets so they show up in the desired location in the Browser. Needless to say, this takes time.

    I recently discovered a few little tricks in Revit to make this process of copying/creating sheets easier. First of all, I have learned that you can copy a sheet as long as there are no Views (or non copyable content) on the sheet. I do this by right-clicking my sheet in the Project Browser and choosing "Copy to Clipboard". Then I go to the Edit menu and choose "Paste from Clipboard". This method of creating a new sheet keeps all the custom Categories that I have assigned to the sheet and the only information I have to update is the sheet number. However, this does not work on sheets with non copyable items. This leads me to the reason I am writing this tip.

    Tip:
    When I want to copy a sheet that contains non-copyable items on it:
    1. Select everything on the sheet except for the titleblock
    2. Hit Delete on the keyboard (don't freak out, we will undo this later)
    3. Right-Click on the sheet name in the Project Browser and choose "Copy to Clipboard"
    4. Go to the Edit menu and choose "Undo Delete" (notice it does not undo the Copy)
    5. Go to the Edit menu and choose "Paste from Clipboard"


    Now I have a copy of my sheet with all the custom Categories assigned. All that I need to do is change the sheet number.
    Okay, I got as far as #3. So here's a stupid question...where is the "Edit" menu on Revit 2017? Sorry but I don't see it on my computer.

    It's just the undo button. I believe that's usually located on your ribbon. Basically you want to delete everything but the sheet, copy the sheet to the clip board, then undo the delete. The sheet will still be on the clip board.
    There's a ton of easy (if not easier ways) to add sheets to a project.
    I'd be using dynamo if I were you.
