    Parametric Tag or beams and/or other elements

    Hello

    I am trying to create a beam tag family that allows me to select different parameters to display within the tag without having several type groups

    eg


    material - name - suffix 1 - suffix 2 - comment

    Currently if I had all of these as separate types I would have around 36 types :S

    If there any way I can make the label parameters a tick box or something within the properties box of the tag itself

    Cheers

    If I'm understanding you properly the way we've done it is to add a visibility parameter to the various labels inside the tag family and check them on and off as we require them.

    Tags don't support using instance parameters to control the visibility of labels. I can see why it could be useful if they did but it does contradict Revit's "type" ideology.

    I believe the reason for the current behavior is to ensure consistency from one type of tag to another. Allowing the instance based toggling of information in the same type of tag means we can't ensure the same information is always presented with a particular tag type.
