    Room Tags, Room Border and Annotations.

    Hi Guys, It is me again Revit Crazy and currently i am feeling myself not a RevitCrazy but a RevitStupid.

    Here are my questions guys :

    1. When I want to create rooms automatically, Revit is not allowing me stating that my room are not enclosed. But My rooms are enclosed.
    2. Then i started to make border lines inside my rooms, and with that i can create rooms but lines are not visible,and when i want to edit my lines i cant find them. VG could not help i can make lines visible but dont know how to edit them easily.
    3. Room tags. I cant move room tags to a desired location easily, can this room tags somehow be more flexible to move?


    Guys, Thank you for your answers and help in advance.

    1. If your rooms are enclosed you would not get 'not enclosed' warnings. Rooms are 3D objects.
    2. How do you define 'edit easily'? Room separation lines are a subcategory of lines, under model categories tab. They work the same way as a model line.
    3. What is your desired room tag location? There are Dynamo nodes in rhythm package which can centre your tags.
    There are no stupid questions, only stupid people

      1.I have walls,windows, floors around my rooms does not mean that my rooms are enclosed ?
      2. When i say edit easily to edit like floors with real lines and easy to move lines.
      3. i have different shaped rooms and generally i would like tags to be centred. And how can i donwload dynamo node and install it?

      Thank you for your answers.

        1.) More often than not, if things LOOK enclosed, but Revit says they are not, there's something poking through a Level.
        Either there's another Floor in between what you're expecting as the Floor, or your Plan View is not set to the LEvel you think it is.
        I've also see it where the Topography slices all the way through the building if you don't have a Pad.
        As with all thing Revit, your first diagnostic tool should be a 3D View. Select the walls you think are bounding the room and use the auto section box to make a 3D View cropped to those elements. Turn on all Categories to make sure there's nothing hidden causing your problem.
        2.) When you say you want to add line to make your rooms "easily editable", you're actually making it a whole lot more complicated. You are duplicating with Room Separation Lines what the Walls already do. What happens when a wall moves? Now you have to go back and make sure the RS line match. Plus you'll have Warnings everywhere they overlap. The only time you should need Room Separation Lines is when you want to split a Room into two without a wall. We have a "Coordination View" that shows only Walls, Door, Columns and Rooms (with the blue Interior Fill and the Reference linesturned on). We also have Room Separation Lines shown as big fat magenta lines. That does make it "easy" to find and correct those overlapping lines.
        3.) The Tag comes in by default at the intersection of the Reference Lines. Which is also the point you picked when you place the room. Be mindful of where you want the Tag when you place the Room, and you'll saved yourself a ton of work later. Also see #2 about Coordination View. You can move the point there.

          Hi Dave, Thanks a lot for your input.

          My partition is 350 thick, 200mm concrete and 150 floor finish. And my level starts at 200mm concrete you mean this can be a problem?

            I don't understand what you mean by that. Floor finish in your partition?
            Can you cut a Section (fine Detail Level) and upload a picture?

                And your Level is where the red line is drawn?
                If so, that's the problem.
                I assume your Floor is defined as Room Bounding, so - since the top of the Floor is above the Level - it stops the Room from growing vertically.
                I asked for a Section. You uploaded a 3D View. Ther reason I wanted a Section is that you can turn on the Interior Fill in a Section, so you can see where the Room is vertically.
                You could try unchecking the Floor's Room Bounding property,m but that may have other unintended effects.
                Probably better to use two floors and make only the Finish Floor not bounding.

                    I'd suggest Googling for that.
