    Using MultiCate tag for tagging Type Mark

    Hi,

    When tagging only the type mark of members or model items do you use a Multicategory tag or do you have one tag for each category?

    For example rather than setting up a ‘Type Mark’ tag for category such as Foundation, Framing , Generic Model etc – I can have one MultiCategory Tag instead.
    Another advantage of this is that in reduces the length of the list in Revit when looking for tags.

    Anyone see any issues with this?

    Thanks

    If you want to have different shaped tags for different items, it's a non starter of an idea. Also, some tags have type mark AND another parameter, which may vary by category.

    For standard type tagging I build category specific tags.

    Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.

      I'm moving in this direction as well reserving category specific tags for, as Aaron mentioned, different shape tags or tags with category specific information. My MC tags grab the Type Mark (although I used a Shared Parameter called Standards Mark so they'll stick with the family between projects), Description, Type Comments, and Comments in varying combinations. I find myself grabbing my MC tag far more than my category tags even if they look the same.

        Thanks for your comments.

        Most of our tags for Type Mark’s are the same and don’t have different shapes or borders – because of this I am leaning towards using MultiCategory tags instead. If more specific tags are required for a category required (with borders etc) that can be easily done.

        Cheers
