    Ok i see what you mean. Title block parameters are not the same as shert parameters. Another option to explore is global parameters but after a bit of tinkering I couldnt get them to control yes/no parameters in the title block.

    No, unfortunately Title Blocks are basically a big Tag that reads paramters from the sheet and then displays them.
    Just like in a tag it can only show a sheet value and not do anything with it, using a formula or visibility or something.

    So.. I would use Dynamo with a Title Block where the yes no parameters can be set per sheet (So users can do it manually if its required/faster)

    Get all sheets ('Get all items in view' with an open sheet list would be easiest)
    Get the sheet parameters for each sheet
    Get the title block on each sheet
    Set the yes/no parameters with Dynamo based on the sheet parameter values

    That way you can set all the zones in a sheet list or the browser, then run to update.

    For full auto you could also get the view on the sheet, see what zone it shows, then set the title block..

    Here's a Dynamo graph I did that's very similar to what you're trying to do.
    It grabs all of the Sheets in a project and filters them down to just Plan Sheets (all of our plan Sheet numbers start with "4")
    Then it looks the the Sheet Name for "Zone #"
    Finally it sets the value of parameters (named "Show Zone #) that match the Zone of the Sheet
    All this sets the visibility of the Filled Regions in a Generic Annotation Key Plan
    The only package it needs is Spring Nodes.
    There is one other package called BWBR, but all that does is log who's used it. You can delete that one.

    Dynamo 2.0 BTW

    Wow I had NO idea it was a gigantic tag. Thanks for that tip.

    Thanks Dave, really kind of you. I have shared parameters identifying the sector so I'll have to tweak your graph. Cheers.
