    Taging and specifying wall legend?!?

    I am trying to make specification for my wall types. The project i'm working on is not too big , but still there are plenty of wall types and finishes.
    I enclose the picture describing the situation, where i got three types of screed, and two types of tiles. I tried to create some main wall types, like load bearing concrete walls with different thicknesses, also gypsum board wall with different core thickness. Beside this i created all my finishes like different types of screed and tiles as separate walls.
    After i have modeled all the structure, i have applied the finishes, by modeling the finish wall and aligning it to a main wall (also joining them together).
    1. The main problem arises when i have to annotate and tag these walls. The tag snaps only to a specific type of wall with a unique type mark.
    2. The door cuts only the host wall, where it is placed in. So in some cases i got a jamb which wraps incorrect.
    3. When placing two walls in a legend i cannot align one to another, also i cannot put dimensions.

    So what is the best way to deal with this problem?

    That's "by design" - and for those that have adopted the multi-wall approach, requires the move to a slightly different way of working - either by:

    opt.1.: multi-tagging, (a tag for cores, a tag for linings, etc) which can be done on the same, or multiple different views/sheets

    or

    opt.2.: using "referred" view references to point toward a "mother" section (I presently do/advocate this)

    This is purely because you're working with the OOTB content - or at least content not setup for multi-wall modelling. The depths to which you can go working up doors/windows/etc (in the family editor) to account for this are endless... and a whole other thread topic in themselves.

    That's because Revit legends suck - and if you go with route opt.2 (above) using real sections, you will be able to rid yourself of them (not entirely, but certainly for this)


    All breezy answers I know, but a lot of this is 'old' news to a lot of us, and has been covered countless times on the forum before. Give the search a try - some really good reading on this topic to be had here.

    And welcome to the forum!
