    Annotation Families & Filled Regions

    Good Morning All,

    I am placing a key plan within my title block family that needs to only be visible on certain sheets. I would like to use an instance based parameter to control the JPEG reflecting the site. I understand that to control a JPEG it needs to be an annotation family. The problem is that when I created the family using the JPEG, I can no longer see the filled regions I am using to highlight different areas of the site. In other words, it is affecting the draw order of my key plan. Is there a way to pull these filed regions back on top of my annotation family ?

    Nest your JPEG into another family.

    I did that but now the filled regions I am trying to use for my key plan are "behind" that nested family.

    Get rid if the jpg and redraw it in Revit. It will take you less time then going through this discussion and everything will work fine.

    Guessing the jpeg is the existing site? Because you have to deal with the display order I would suggest using Legends instead of an annotation symbol. You will have to create multiple legend views though to highlight what you want. But display order works.

    I ended up linking parameters through the nested JPEG family, in to my title block.
