    REVIT DIMENSIONS copy and paste

    Does anyone know of a good way to add a dimension that is not connected to anything (in plan and section view)? so I can copy and paste it anywhere I like, similar to AutoCAD.

    Yup, use Autocad...

    The whole idea is that your dimensions actually refer to something and adapt to changes.
    But if you really need to: use a refplane to dimension. These won't print. Or an invisible detail line...

    btw: if you copy/paste your dimensions to a similar geometry somewhere else in the model, it will recognise it and snap to it.

        May I ask why you want to do this?

          We used to use this method when we couldn't select our rebar edges in details. I'd just like to see a little bit easier way to fake a dimension especially in drafting views where you need to use a break line to make it fit in the detail box. Currently we use a 1/256 text size with no offset and use text, but it's really lame.

            There's always a workaround... Am reluctant to even show this one though - So use at your own risk :beer:
