    So on the floor plan in may say something like "wood trim see elevations" and on the elevations it may say something like "1x6 trim board, painted." Bad examples but I hope you see what I mean.

      Something that you can't see in the view? Well, if you can't see it, you can't tag it!

      But seriously, have you considered making it so you can see it in the view? The invisible line trick is often used for this.

        Well see that would be too difficult for most people. Especially because the Detail Line command is much easier..... :banghead: If I were the only drafter/modeler here there wouldn't be an issue. But I usually have to fix what other people choose not to do correctly. Despite how many times i've explained how its more difficult to fix than to just do it right the first time...

          Yeah, okay. Not how I'd note the drawings but that's besides the point. You're stuck then unless you want different Shared Parameters AND different tags for each type of view.

          Or maybe tag it one view and GA note it in the other?

            Yeah. But again its more of a problem of people doing things a certain way for the last 20+ years and not willing to change how they did stuff. But then when i say we can use simple text like powercadd they are against that also because we need it to be "smart"

            Im fighting a losing battle.

                I remember doing this back in cad days so you only have to change the note in one place: But using MC tags and/or keynotes solves that problem completely.
                I would humbly suggest that that method is a hangover to solve a problem that doesnt exist anymore

                  GA Note Blocks: Demolition Notes only. (Because they arent going to get tied to item types, and they are so bespoke on every job its easier to type them in canvas).
                  maybe it's not a good idea to have custom keynote file pre-divided w/ Element, Material, User?

                    To each their own. Mine are broken up by specification.

                    There isn't value (to me) in that extra level of segregation. It just gives you three places to have to look for a particular keynote to edit it.

                      thanks Aaron, not good idea for sure, but i'm worrying about "over-flexible" or abusing of user keynoting, by separating user from element/material within keynote file will have some kind of control of when/whether to use user keynote, perhaps i'm overthinking.
