    different titles on views & tags

    For internal elevations, is there a way to have different titles shown on the elevation tags and different titles on the view title? For example I have a kitchen detail with some elevations, and I would like more descriptive titles on the view title (ie. kitchen elevation 1, kitchen elenation 2 etc.) and shorter title on the tags where the space is limited (ie. 1, 2, etc.)
    Does anyone have any suggestions about the best way to face this?

    You should be able to accomplish that with the "View Title on Sheet" parameter of the Elevation View

      I don't think that's right. View Title on Sheet isn't an available parameter for Elevation Marks and using View Name would allow for only one of these elevation tags done the way the OP is looking for.

      If you'll always use 1, 2, 3, and 4 then you can make a tag with those numbers as Text rather than Labels to mimic. Untested but should work.

        We use the text ELEVATION in our view title and the view number label just picks up the view number in the project. Same with SECTION.

          Ok thanks all for your answer. I feel the best way for me is to use the descriptive title for each view and override it with simple numbering text (1,2,3...) on the tags. But how do I hide the original title from the tag? Should I edit the tag family? Or use a masking region?

            Create a copy of your existing view tag, modify as necessary and apply it to a new viewport type.

              do you mean to edit the family and remove the text?
