    Curtain Panel TAG position

    Hi all!

    How can I add dimension parameters inside a Curtain Panel Tag family to adjust tag position?

    option a: move it manually
    option b: nest your tag family into a parent tag family of the same category and lock/ align the origin reference planes to instance based offset reference planes in the parent family. Don't forget to link your identifying parameter through as well.

    If I try to insert a family tag into another I got this message:

    Can't create this kind of element in this view in the current mode.

    Now I'm at work with Revit in front of me it indeed seems you can't do as I suggested. I've never actually needed to do what you're trying i just move my tags manually.

    I've attached a tag family that will do what you want, notice the label itself is grouped with two invisible lines to which the dimensions are attached.
    I'm not necessarily recommending this workflow but the family does do what you asked for, so your mileage may vary...

    I move curtain panel tags all the time but just do it with SV (select all instances in view) and move them all at one time. I've never had an occasion to have to move multiple tags to lots of different locations on the face of a curtain panel. Occasionally I move one or two to avoid them being obscured by other annotation.

    Thanks elton!
    With invisible lines works perfectly!
