    CD View Reference

    I have been asked to incorporate a parameter in the viewport type that references to a detail/view in the construction documents as shown in the doc. My thought is to add a instance parameter to the title with a parameter that shifts where it is left/right so they can line it up to the right. I understand that this will be unintelligent and all.

    Does anyone have any input on this? Suggestions? Better ideas?

    You cant do it. You would be adding an Instance parameter to the Viewport TITLE Family, not to the Viewport itself. The Viewport Title Instance never gets declared, it gets declared by Type. Unless, of course, you want to have a different Viewport type for every single detail that needs a reference...

      sorry for asking (maybe a language issue?) but how is it possible to add Instance parameter to viewport title family? In the family types browser, I can add parameters, but after that, how may I use them? OOTB family has two (name and elevation) that apparently are useless.
      the only thing I can add is a text, and set his visibilty with a yes/no type parameter. so I can change the type of the title family in the type properties of the viewport, but I have to edit the title family to change the text.
      Is that correct? Thanks.

        You can add a label, and the family already has two parameters it will read for that, Referencing Sheet and Referencing Detail, but it may not be what you want, if you show call-out the detail in more than one place.

          Is there a smart way to handle these referencing issues? I think someone in our office just left them as they were throughout the process and right before the 100% submittal, he put text over them.

            Im trying to do the same as described above (add text to the viewport title that can be an editable instance for ea. detail.

            I was able to get a label with references back to the sheets in my revit project, but i need to reference the CDs . ( would also like to add another line with other info that would be relavent to ea. particular detail.

            Is there a way to do this? I see this is an old thread, an Aaron answered "no" a while back, just checking to see if its possible currently in revit 2012 or 2013?
