    You can do that without a lot of fuss in 2017 or 2018 using plain old text notes. Making judicious use of carriage returns (Shift+Enter) and tabs will get you there eventually. If you are trying to do that in 2016 or earlier, it will be really sucky.

      I have notes like this form 2009 that work just fine.
      I cant recall exactly how I did it but I-ll have a look in the coming days and let you know.

        Revit can do the major heading numbering for you (3. CONCRETE and 5. STEEL)
        but it won't be able to automatically number the sub-heads (3.1, 3.1.1, etc)
        Those you'll have to type in yourself.

          With older versions of Revit, I made the numbering a separate text entity.

            Here's my method, V2017:
            1. My General Specs, which don't change, are in a family that drop in a Legend, then the Sheet. Those are formatted with Revit autonumbering within each secttion.
            2. I have what's called a CalGreen checklist, that does change sometimes but I've managed it generic it up enough to not need changing often. That's in Excel, then exported as pdf to jpg to Revit, a PIA.


            Looks like this, and yeah, the text doesn't match, I'll get right on that....:

              Have you tried a note block?
              Create a generic annotation family with parameters for sorting (5.11) (5.12) etc. and multi line text. You can schedule and sort that family and it should keep things nice lined up and it's fairly easy to edit later on.
