    Tag A Soffit?

    OK, so this intrigues me a little.
    We have this tool available in RAC to create a soffit to a roof. Great. Works well enough, well that is until you go to tag them.:banghead:
    It seems that soffit's cannot be tagged in the model. Is this correct?
    If that is the case, how do people tag soffit heights and materials in their projects? Do they just use ceilings instead?

    What is the point of having the soffit tool if you cant apply information to that element?:crazy:

    Alas it is true - there is no soffit tag. :crazy:

    I use a generic annotation label, but have also used a modified keynote tag also. I could never get either to show height like a ceiling tag - and have since started to consider differentiating ceilings by an interior/exterior parameter and just use them instead of the soffit tool.

      I've always just used ceilings for these reasons.

        We use ceilings, too.

            There's no soffit tag, neither is there a fascia tag, nor a wall sweep tag.
            The only way to do this is creating custom shared parameters (type, text) and apply that to all these kind of categories. Then you can tag them.
            Height and stuff isn't possible though. Height can only be tagged using the spot elevation tag.

              It's been a while since I've actually had to tackle this, and so haven't needed to review if it's been included in either 2011 or 2012, but seeing as there's a great majority of you using ceilings for soffits, does that mean ceilings can now have more than one edge defining slope? If not, what do you do with hipped/valley soffits? Paired/multiple elements/sketches?
