    Can't schedule a shared type parameter

    hello,
    I have a yes/no type parameter in a family title block.
    I create a share parameter and associate it in this parameter.
    This parameter I associate in the text that I want to show or not.
    In the project I upload this shared parameter to can schedule.
    I see this parameter in the project I can schedule it but doen't do what I want. The text don't appear.
    I need to do this in a schedule I try to do this with instance parameter and I can't do too.

    What's happen?????

    How are you creating the text? In your main family? If so that text won't be visible in the project. You need to nest a Generic Annotation family into your main family and associate your Yes/No visibility parameter to that.

      The text is a simple text if I create a instance parameter and associate with the text and insert the family in the proyect I can show/hide the text, but I can't extract this parameter in a schedule than I need to do in each sheet and there are many sheets.
      Include I try associate a shared parameter with the instance parameter but doesn't work in the proyect appear two parameter in the sheet view.

        Without being in your Revit world it's difficult to discern what's going on with your parameters

          Sheets arent Titleblocks. Parameters that you put in Titleblocks wont show up in the Sheets Properties. You need Properties of SHEETS, or Project Information.

            I show step by step what I'm doing
            1.In family



            2.In the project

            When the parameter is in the project I see this in properties of the view, but also appear in the properties of the sheet. And only work in this one.


            I see in the schedule too, but doesn't work. And what I want is that work in the schedule to control all of sheets in the same place because I have many sheets.

            When I make with type parameters doesn't work.
            Please I really need help because I'm completely blocked.

              What im saying, is you cant connect parameters from the TITLEBLOCK to the SHEET. Not without something like Dynamo, anyway.

              Right now youve made the parameter, and put it in the titleblock. Which IS controlling the visibility of the letters.

              Then youve added the same parameter to the sheets, but it is in NO WAY connected to that Titleblock, and it cant be (without something like Dynamo).

                To elaborate: a titleblock, or any tag for that matter, is designed to call out information from the sheet or the project it is placed on. This calling out of information is done through labels. Then in the titleblock itself, additional parameters can be used to drive what you draw in the titleblock. There is, sadly, no way to connect the titleblock parameters to the titleblock label parameters.
                Dynamo or an add-in could copy the values from the titleblock and write them to the sheet on a regular interval, but that is as far as it goes.
                One thing does come to mind as I am typing this: I never tried to hook up sheet parameters to global reporting parameters and use those to drive titleblock parameters. If you beat me to it, let me know if it works!
                There must be a better way...
