    Question SYMBOL NEEDED - Point of Connection / Point of Disconnection

    Simple & common annotation. Yet Revit does not have these? I'm pretty sure I am not the first to seek this out. Currently I just have some drafting lines to represent this but it is not ideal. If anyone has any info it would be much appreciated.

    Solved.
    Just created a couple of generic annotations and adjusted the DOT arrow head down to 1/32" so it plots okay.
    It would be nice if I could have 1 symbol with both connect/disconnect options (like my cad version of the symbol) but I know I can't have everything.

    Entirely possible. You just need to make the symbol have two types, with different visibility options.

    That's exactly what I do. I try to use this approach as much as possible: fewer families with more types. For example, my Pipe Tag family has 18 Types in it.

    I took the multiple type approach for some tags, but having a type for every conceivable combination of information I want (especially with mechanical equipment) just bogged down my types list. The fact that toggling the visibility of lines does not change the snap point of the leader really irritated me when making my first round of tags. For my current project, I ended up creating a tag where each type is one parameter, and I can tag the equipment as many times as I need to to get the right information, and then I just arrange it in the proper format. As an added benefit, I can have the leader connect to the symbol portion of the composite "tag" and not the middle. IMO, much more flexible, but YMMV.

    For a symbol like this though, easy.
