    European window tag???

    Hi, guys. I'm new in revit and have some problems with window tags.
    All tags i could find on the internet were us but i need the european style tag.
    I've tried to create one of my own but since i'm new in revit
    i just made it look like it should look, but it doesn't rotate with window
    in the way that it sopose to.
    I'm posting my tag family and image that shows how
    it has to work and if anybody can help me to create my tag, please do.
    thanks

      The short explanation: in the family properties (select nothing and look at the properties screen), you'll find a few checkboxes. There should be a few stating "always stay vertical" (needs to be off) or "rotate with component" (needs to be on). Don't have Revit at hand so I can't check for you.

        thank's guys . I tried your file and it solves just the half of the problem. you'll see on the image and revit file. It's made by checking the "rotate with component" i guess, cause I already tried it before.
        the thing is that height and width change places depending of orienation and sill height should allways be inside. for my first project i solved it by having four different tags for 4 basic orientations but i think there must be the way to put all in one tag. Maybe it could be solved by some kind of visibility in which all 4 basic orientations are in the file but you check visible just the one you need for your window.

          Try checking off "Keep Readable"

            Don't separate width and height in two labels. Keep them in one label, separated by line break.

                @ Hirvio. Don't you use the same tags like we are?

                  Exactly. Take a look on those I made, see if they fit you:

                  Stavka-ST-VR.rfa (for wooden doors).

                  Stavka-BR-PR.rfa (for metal or PVC windows).

                  Only thing that bothers me is that I don't know how to keep Type Mark always horizontal. Keep readable does nothing to it.

                  Welcome to the forum :beer:

                    The hungarian tag family has 2 types in it, and it has 2 instance of each labels, and their visiblity is controlled by the types. Didnt find a better solution yet...Ablak méret m=100.rfaAblak méret m=50.rfa
