    "Super" Door Tag

    I stumbled across a LinkedIn post a few years back about a door tag family that displayed all scheduled information (trim, finish, hardware, etc.) in the smallest font size possible that was used for QA/QC reviews. This workflow would prevent users from having to flip back and forth between the door schedule sheet and the plan views. The tiny font size also still worked with Bluebeam Revu OCR, therefore no data would be lost in PDFs. Or at least that was the idea.

    Does anyone else recall the LinkedIn post? Or have seen a similar workflow?

      Thanks, Aaron! I don't remember your team being the author of the original post, but those images do look familiar. Maybe I saw them in a different thread. 🤷‍♂️

      I developed a similar structural framing tag/workflow for scheduled concrete post-tension beams, and I'm trying to cite the source, but having trouble locating it.

          Interesting tags, but dont your presentation drawings just get too dense with such meaty tags? Isnt it better to just put the info in a table that you attach to drawings and use a "Mark" identifier?
          I dont do architecture work so Im not that familiar with your presentation drawings, but seems like the sheet would be filled with tags

            A table/schedule would still be used. The intent would be to have a separate QA/QC view that is not on the published drawing sheets. Or for the user to change the tag types temporarily during the review process.

              You are missing the point of the tags. They dont ever get printed on the "real drawings." We swap the tags to these when we want to PDF and review the Door Schedule. Why would i want to have to review a plan AND a door schedule, when i can just review the Plan that has the door schedule on it?

                We use a similar approach for a slightly different use case: Over here our door schedules traditionally have been graphical, so we tag as well as schedule (especially for small projects): sometimes this makes the story easier to tell
