    Changing Yes / No Parameter for Wall Type Tags

    We have various list of wall types with the assigned Type Mark value. We have the need for Smoke Walls in all our jobs and the only thing unique about this wall type is the layer of plasterboard must extend to the underside of floor/roof and sealed. So rather than create a separate wall type with all the various acoustic and plasterboard layer configurations as the others, I wanted to simply make it a Yes/No instance parameter for the user.
    That part is easy enough, but I would like the tag to pick this up. The problem I am running into, once I add this to my wall tag, it obviously reports "Yes" and ideally, I would just like a suffix of "S" or "F" (Firewalls).

    Anyone know of any tricks? Or maybe I am just making this more complicated than it needs to be and I should just resort to a simple text parameter.

    I know how to do this in families with multiple parameters, but I don't know how to do that using shared parameters / project parameters for system families.

    Or maybe I am just going about it the wrong way and others have better methods?

    Can't you just make another parameter and make it conditional on the smoke parameter being yes then =S, etc., and then show that in the Tag ?

      Might take a look at this post: https://www.revitforum.org/architect...html#post51959

      I used modifiers underneath the tag for stuff like sound batts, Tile and such...

      This reminds me....I need to create drafting views like this again for my current office.

        maybe I am having a "slow" day, as it is friday, or I am about to learn something new, but can you explain a few more steps? how are you doing this with a tag?
