    Controlling SIM. tag if both views are referencing others?

    I'm going against the grain with Revit and wondering if it's possible to have two detail sections that are both referencing the same existing view, but I want only one to show the SIM. tag attached.

    since both sections are referencing the same view, Revit will automatically set them both as the same System Family. Even if I duplicate type, create a new one without a SIM. If I change one the other goes with it.

    any ideas, or am I just going to have to manually place a SIM. text?


    The reference is controlled by the parent view type so it's all one reference or nothing.

    But don't do it. You'll regret it in the long run. Technically, something that is the same is also similar, as is something that has been mirrored, and something that is nearly the same but not quite (although you might want to note what is different in the view or, better yet, make it a new view).
