    Grids

    So I have a model from the architect and they have their grid lay out and I am trying to match it. The catch is, is that they have two Grid C

    How do you make two grids the same number/letter?

    I can copy and paste from their model and it works just find, but I am just really curious as to how they did this initially.

    I'd bet :beer: they don't have two Grid C s.
    Revit won't let you do that, so I'll bet one of them has a slightly different name. Maybe a period, or an apostrophe. Possibly even some sort of a non-printing character.
    Is one of the grids centered, and the other slight off-center? The off-center one will be the one with the extra character.

      They might of done a lower case "c" and a upper case "C" grids are case sensitive...

        They are both cap "C" and there is not period, apostrophes, or anything else that I can visually see....

          Is the identity data both "C" like shown below?

              Someone knows Revit magic then....

              Can you post a screen shot of the grids.

              They are both Grid right. One isnt a line based family or anything else?

                I want to know how they did it then. I hate that grids aren't view dependent. If I have a structural grid, and a foundation one, why can't I start them both at 1, or A? It's two different views, two different plans. I hate starting one at 15 (for example).

                Then again, it is a DB program. I'm sure that has something to do with it. I'd still like to know how they did it. Can you call them and ask? lol

                  I gotten this working one time (although only with visual workaround)

                  I had 2 grids I think I had called them Unit1-A and Unit2-A in the name parameter. Then added a shared parameter named "DisplayName" there called both the grid "A".
                  Then I created a new grid head that looks at the the DisplayName parameter and not the Name parameter.

                  Then you can have 2 grids with both called A on 1 view or sheet.

                  Or you could put the grid in separate project and link them into a main model.

                    Could you post an empty project with just the grids in them? would love to poke around.
