    This is exactly what we do here and it works pretty well. The only issue I've seen is it also overrides phase settings, so existing equipment/ductwork/air terminals will show black as well.

    I typically break them at every floor regardless and join them as needed if the same framing is actually bypassing the slab. Walls like to join to other walls and wrap corners, and that gets messy...

    You can add a reference plane at the midpoint with EQ constraints to the top and bottom. Then you can lock the diagonal line endpoints to that reference plane and it will stay equal.

    We show separate frame type legends on projects that have sidelites and/or transoms. If all the frames are the same configuration, there's not much benefit, and the widths are covered in the details....

    That doesn't let you adjust the size of the text box though, only show where it is. Do you have a way to add a grip to that?

    Aside from the length of text being editable in the project, you're describing generic annotation and note blocks. As far as I know, there's no way to edit the length of a label or text field without...

    the ones that go in the view usually associated with a matchline. I know the view title can't be touched, but that's one per sheet. The view references can be 6 or 8 per view, so a little more time...

    View reference tags

    We're starting to look at automating view and sheet creation here using dynamo and it seems like one of the sticking points with a few people has been placement of view reference tags on sheets. Has...

    We use extra yes/no issuance parameters to drive our drawing matrix, populated by a custom tool matching them up to the revision sequence number. Before we had that it was a semi-manual process using...

    I've seen this "trick" posted before and I still cannot think of any reason to actually use it aside from maybe using a formula to lock a yes/no parameter in a family. Since yes/no parameters only...

    This is what I typically do as well. Easier to manage if a door needs to move.

    I'm not totally sure what you're trying to accomplish either, but you can tag objects like ceilings and other elements based on their offsets from the level. Our ceiling tags for RCPs have an...

    I've used this approach too, but I'll add one extra step that might help. When editing the roof sketch, split the boundary 1/2" or whatever dimension you want from the ends. That way when you place...

    We use a generic annotation family with the image file inside. That way you can assign some parameters to it to turn it on or off in a titleblock and make sure the size stays consistent.

    I haven't heard of them so I'm guessing we haven't. I'll pass it on to IT to see if they've looked at them though. Our machines are all Dells, so I know there are some limits on what we can swap out...
