    Using Project Information parameters in other families?

    Is there any way to use the Project Information parameters in a custom annotation family?

    Any time we release any CAD/BIM files to someone, we have some release notes we put on them. One of the notes has several places where either a client name, project name or date is needed. These fields are obviously already used in the Title Block family - is there a way to reuse these parameters inside my custom annotation family?

    Please refer to this thread:

    As discussed in that thread, it is not possible to add shared parameters to generic annotation families. However it is possible in titleblocks families, which insert on sheets, only. If the notes you need go on sheets, you could create a 'titleblock family' that is just a note, reusing the same shared parameters that you use in your titleblock.
