    Parameter that displays which view a generic annotation is placed in??

    Wondering if there is a way for Revit to tell me and schedule which views my generic annotations are placed in.

    for example I have a symbol placed in the East Elevation, In the schedule I want a column that tells me that this symbol lives in the east elevation. I don't want it to be driven by a comment or something I need to manually enter...any ideas??

    The result i'm going for is just to be able to filter my generic annotation schedule by view name, which would be perfect.

    :beer::beer:

    thanks for any feedback

    Not nativity in Revit. You can schedule generic annotations in a note block, but can only select fields from generic annotations and project information. W use a custom parameter to show our generic annotation sheet notes in the right views. Add it to the Autodesk Ideas list and maybe it will get implemented someday.

      Can you tell me more about your custom parameter? was it made by a third party app or hack? what does it do exactly?

      right now I have a trial version of CTC express tools 'Spreadsheet Link Express' and it has a laundry list of fields available for Generic Annotations, one of the them being 'owner view', which is exactly what I want. If I could just get that to be an available field in native revit I would be set!

        Nothing fancy, just an instance parameter that we manually put the sheet number into, then we filter by that. You could probably write a dynamo script to do it for you, but you'd have to keep running it when you added new instances.

        The owner view could be coming from the workset - annotation objects are on their view's workset but you can't get to that nativity.
