    Key Note Problem

    I copied a view that has Key Notes on it. Then applied a view template to create a different discipline view. Then I erased all of the annotations on my view and placed it on a sheet. For some reason when I place it on the sheet 3 Key Notes are showing in the Key note schedule even though I erased them in the view.
    :crazy:
    Anyone know why this is happening?
    Thanks,

    What kind of key notes are you using? We ran across this problem when someone mistakenly assigned an element keynote instead of a user keynote. This apparently assigns the keynote to an object, and it will still show up in the schedule if that object is in the view. What stinks now is you have to go find the offending entity and delete the keynote from the type properties.

      We always use material or element keynotes, and I don't recall ever having this problem. How is your keynote schedule set up? Ours is looking for keynote tags, filter by sheet.

        These Key Notes are all the "User" type and they are still showing up.

        Yes our Schedule is set up the same way "Key Value" and "Key text" filtered by sheet.

          And if you select everything in the view and filter there aren't any keynote tags listed?

            Yes I selected the entire view and the filter does not show any Key Note Tags. I even revealed all hidden elements and could find any Key Tags. I guess the next step would be to just create a new view from scratch.

              No linked files that might have keynotes?

                Even though the Keynote Tag was deleted, the Keynote is still associated to the element. You will need to find the element and remove the keynote from the type properties. This happens regardless of it being a user, element or material.

                  Actually, it seems that user keynotes don't associate a keynote with an object. The first screenshot is using a Material Keynote, which fills in the Keynote field in the type properties. The second screenshot is using a User Keynote, which doesn't assign a Keynote value.

                  You could create some quick schedules to try and find the elements that have keynotes assigned, just pick a family category and add the Keynote field. I'm not sure if there's an easier way to do it.

                    That is not true. If a keynote tag is deleted it should not appear in a schedule of keynote tags. Keynotes in type properties should not have to be deleted to remove them from the keynote tag schedule. See attached images.

                    Edit: these are element keynotes, and I did not modify the elements type properties.
