    What parameters to use for a titleblock to read detail view names?

    I'm trying to insert this titleblock in order to read the sheet name in identity data and a custom identity data parameter within the titleblock family. Now I understand that Revit would break if you put multiple views in it since it couldn't reconcile the views added to display that. So I'm wondering if I'm going about this the wrong way. How can I throw detail views onto a sheet and have it populate information based on the detail view instead of having to retype up the same information into the sheet?

    That is what view titles are for...

    Now you can modify a view title to include a box, but you are pretty limited on what information can be added to it.

    Unless what you are showing is the sheet view, then you just need to modify a view title that will overlap the information in your sheet view.

      It is in a sheet view since it's a titleblock family.
      If I have multiple sheets with singular detail views in those sheets, I would have to modify each individual view title for each detail view to be in the same place on the titleblock family? There is no way to automate that?

      Also what about custom information? Also integrate that into the view title as a parameter to read from the project parameters? Even if I do all of that I'm still stuck dragging all view titles into the right place for say... 100 sheets?

        I usually add some crosshairs in my view title family using invisible lines so I can line it up where I want it. That is for large format sheets and so all the details line up. Same principle with a single sheet.

        As for doing that to multiple sheets, yeah, unless there is a way to automate it in Dynamo. Sorry, not a fan of single sheet details.

        Nice thing is, you can do it once, and then resuse the same sheets w/ details for other projects.

          I just tried it and it sort of works. How do you get the invisible lines to snap to anything?

          Also appreciate the direction. I was trying to integrate it in the titleblock by writing a formula to point shared parameter to read out the project parameter.... Nightmare.

            Eyeball it...I usually turn off thin lines and then use the keyboard arrows to nudge it where it needs to go....requires a little bit closer zoom.
            After a few times you can usually place it 90% of where it needs to be...

              I was afraid you would say that. I'm wondering if setting up gridlines would work in this case? I like 0,0,0 accuracy
