    Typical Callout

    Is it not possible to have a callout represented on multiple views? If not whats the best workaround? I have been using masking regions but its not fun or pretty...

    Not quite sure i understand, but yes a callout can be represented (associated) in multipile views by "Reference other view".
    Select callout, and before you make your callout check the "Reference other view", then pick from the dropdown box the view you want to associate the callout to.
    Hope this is what you mean.

      Not quite what I ment say level 1 & level 2 are typical is it possible to have the same callout shown on both levels with the callout detail shown on a sheet? Also I thought this may be standard but seems different in MEP I can't do what you describe above. Will post in MEP section but thanks anyway...

              Seems to read like you can do it in all versions of Revit. From the help file.
              I would find it hard to beleive you would not be able to do it in MEP.

                Yup:
                View Tab > Callout. Draw the callout boundary on level 1
                View Tab > Callout. BEFORE drawing the actual boundary, go to the Options Bar, check "Reference other view" and select the previous callout. That should do it.

                  LOL, I just posted the exact same answer in the MEP-forum. As far as I know this can also be done in MEP (although I am still waiting on my upgrade to Premium Suite to come through)
