    Tag All Walls, Exterior Side Only

    If I am diligent, and in the right frame of mind, at drawing my interior partitions clockwise or counterclockwise, I can control where the "exterior side" lands when I initially lay down these partitions in the Revit model. The flip arrow is a clue that I've got the exterior side, like the double gyp side, of the wall on the flip arrow side.

    If I didn't re-orientate any of the partitions by using the flip arrow/spacebar and I tag all walls, the wall tag will attached itself to the exterior side of the wall. That's good and comforting in Revitland.

    However, as soon as I flip arrow/spacebar a wall and retag all walls again, the tag seems to remember its original orientation and ignores where the exterior side now resides.

    Any clue as to why this is? Can we have wall tags always attach themselves to the exterior side of the wall when doing Tag All? Just curious.

    I guess this means that we should stop fliping wall all together. hahah

      No. Good find though!

      The door orientation issue has the same origin. When they fix that, your issue will probably be fixed as well. Looking forward to the update features!
      There must be a better way...
