    Rearranging views onto different sheets

    Since I have an ACA background, as do many other people here, I have a question about deleting views from sheets.

    ACA would, quite often, screw up the link between the callouts and the sheets if you deleted a view off the sheet and put it on another sheet. Luckily, you could drag and drop the view name to the sheet in project navigator and usually fix the problem.

    If I have sheets already set up, and add a detail. What's the procedure for deleting a view off of one sheet and inserting it on another? Is it as simple as just deleting it and reinserting it elsewhere? I think the links in Revit are better than they were in ACA, probably because it's one file and not a bunch of Xref's. I'm about to rearrange some views on sheets and I don't want to screw my project up.

    EDIT: On a side note, I noticed I misspelled "rearranging" in the title. How do I edit that? Or does a MOD have to do it?

    I think you can just delete it and reinsert it, but its faster to drag and drop the view from the project browser> sheet > your view to another sheet on the project browser (it will open the sheet for you) or if you have the sheet open, you can drag and drop directly onto it

      Ah, I never knew Revit could do that. So I can just find the detail I want moved in my sheet section in the browser, and drag it to another sheet in the browser? It will then open up the sheet so I can place it where it needs to be, and automatically delete it from the first sheet? Sweet!

            Won't that confuse Revit? If it doesn't delete it, then it would be on 2 sheets. Which callout does it use?

              It will remove it from the first sheet. The view can't be on two sheets at the same time

                It has never deleted it for me... It just displays the "-" in the view reference untill you only have it placed one time. Let me try it out maybe I am a little loopy from the drugs.

                  I think what you are refering to is the callout symbol, when its not placed on sheets (This will show the - until the view is placed on a sheet),
