    Add Parameter to Family Category - View Title

    I'm trying to create a custom view title family for the office (see attached). We'd like to have a label for Drawing Type (ie. "Building Plan" in the attached image) in the view title which would appear in the properties tab under identity data, next to the standard Title on Sheet, View Name, etc.

    In the project, I am able to create a project parameter which appears as desired in the properties tab, but am unable to add the parameter inside the family when creating it. It seems impossible to add this parameter to the standard view title family template (alongside Detail Number, Sheet Number, etc.).

    I tried it using a Generic Annotation family, but in the project, Revit does not recognize that family as a view category family and therefore you cannot choose this family when setting your view type.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I would edit one of the existing view titles and make it look like what you need rather than starting from scratch.

      Some content, and I think this is one of them - so is the revision tag, are hardwired to only allow for certain parameters. I don't think you can do what you're wanting to do...

        First start off the family template for "View Titles" Template library > Annotations folder.

        Secondly you can also change the category of your family you have started to "View Titles" see attached SS.

          Is correct. You can not add shared parameters to refrencing families. PERIOD

          You can however add type based paramters and use them with view types in the project.
