    Trying to get an elevation tag to read a parameter

    I am trying to create a elevation tag that will read a project parameter.
    Our sheet name has become quite long, its an unfortunate side effect of a drawing system we are required to use.

    I have created a project parameter that will read a 4 digit reference to make things easier and more legible for the elevation tags on our drawing. When i go into the elevation tag I am unable to add this project parameter to the label.

    Can anyone suggest an alternative or how to get around this.

    Thank you

    You need to use Shared Parameters instead of Global Parameters or Project Parameters.

      Thanks for the reply Tomek,

      I have tried the shared parameter and I run into the same problem, I cannot seem to add a parameter of any kind into the labels for the elevation tag

        I think that you're out of luck.
        Unfortunately you can't add parameters to both Elevation Mark Body and Elevation Mark Pointer.

          Do you mean elevation marks & pointers or a text based tag for model elements? If the latter you could use your family's (shared) height parameter or a second reporting parameter attached to a dimension from the level in the family up to an elevation reference plane. If using the hardcoded offset parameter for family elevation that won't work though...if youre tagging the height of a system family the parameter for offset should be there for each category.
          If you do mean elevation markers and pointers then as tomek said, computer says no...

            It seems I have no options regarding the view reference in elevation and section. Failing that is it possible to allow revit to create duplicate sheet numbers.

              I found this over on the autodesk forums which seems to fix my issue I was having. Hopefully it will help out some others in this position.

                Not with the hardcoded sheet number parameter. There are hacks but i wouldn't recommend them.
