    Callout Stair Details

    In ACA, I would just create a tag with a leader to call out my stair details. I can't do that in Revit. I really don't want a huge section marker cutting throught my stairs mucking up my floor plan. Plus, I have 2 separate stairs, one under the other. Is a section the only way?

    I know I could create a drafting view and tag it with a callout, but then I'd have to "draw" the entire stair section in 2D. How is everyone else doing this? I've attached my floor plan and my stair details from ACA. What's the easiest way to get the same results?

    What about if, on your 1/4" plan view, you create just a callout view of the stairs. Then on that other view, at 1/2", you make all the section marks you need, to create the other views. Those section marks will be smaller and will be set to "Hide at scales coarser than: 1/2 = 1'-0", so they won't affect the main 1/4" view. Then, arrange the stairs plan, section views and details on a sheet.

      Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking. Except in Revit I can't just have a live tag. I have to draw the boundry around the stairs. Since there are two on top of each other, that may be tricky. I'll try it though.

        Create a different tag type for the stairs. You can either have this set to hide at scales coarser then 1:1 (for example) or select one, right click, select all instances, hide in view...

          But if it doesn't have any sort of boundary, how will it know what to include in the detail view?

            Now I'm getting confused..
            The way I see it, you need two sections: one through the stairs, one in front of it facing towards the stairs. Both sections have a View Depth and a Crop box. So you can modify the field of view in all directions you want. See attached...

            Plan View "Level 1" is showing no section markers.
            Plan View "Level 1 1to1" is showing section markers. Because this view is on scale 1:1, and the section markers are set to hide at scales coarser then 1:1. Sections 1 and 2 are set up to show only the bottom stairs...

              Use the Sectiontool to create the Detail view. Make a callout-tag that fits you and breake the section line in plan view. Now you can drag the section line towards the tag and use it as leader.

              I would do the same to hide the tag in desirred views.

                You're not confused. I don't know what I'm talking about. :laugh: How hard would it be to do the example in 2011? Please!

                How exactly do I do that? I'm lost.

                  Hows this? It may not be the best solution, but it's working so far.

                  I placed an interior elevation marker looking at the stairs (as if I'm walking up them). Isolated the stairs in the elevation and put a section marker for the side view. Now, I only have an elevation marker on the floor plans.

                    Section markers are invisible in ALL views not set scale 1:1... Use this a lot for "working" sections which I want to keep but not have them clutter up my (working)views.
