    Setup a Revision schedule with the appropriate fields. Select the row you want to see, right click > Show. This should do the trick...

        a revision schedule is set up in a titleblock family file. New/Family/Titleblocks and select a titleblock template to use. In the Family editor select the View tab and Revision schedule. Load the titleblock into your project then you can control the population of the revision information with Manage tab/Additional Settings/Sheet Issues Revisions.

        good luck!

          Well, I was actually referring to something else...
          When you place your views with cloud on the sheet, you can create a Sheet List with some current Revision Data. But not the Comments, my bad...

          I HATE it when they do that. How does this work? Is a Factory-meeting something like this:

          Factory dude nr 1 (nr 1): Let's make Revision data visible in a Sheet List
          Factory dude nr 2 (nr 2): Great idea, what would our most valued and treasured clients want?
          nr 1: Schedule Revision Date, number, Issue-parameters. Anything else?
          nr 2: How about Comments?
          nr 1: But you don't want to schedule the REASON for revisioning...
          nr 2: Well, I would.
          nr 1: No you don't.
          nr 2: But...
          nr 1: Nope... Let's not put it in there
          nr 2: ok

          LET'S AGREE TO MAKE EVERY FREAKING OOTB PARAMETER USEABLE IN ANY KIND OF SCHEDULE!!!

          <rant off, and breathe.... breathe..... breathe..... back in your quite space now>

          Yet another reason to start thinking about using your own kind off Revision thingies... There are some great threads about that here. Search for "Revit model review" or something similar.

              No I don't, I need 5 minutes alone with factory guy nr 1, who makes these complete arbitrary, random descisions on whether or not ootb parameters are available in Schedules. This has forced me to let go of ootb parameters all together. I cannot trust them to be useful. You never know if and which one is going to get you into big doo-doo later on...

                I completely agree with you, however, I had a nap in the meantime
