    Bar mark annotation drag grip??

    Hi, is It possible to adjust the length of the line as shown in my pic. attached using a grip? at the moment I have added a length parameter, however if I want to adjust the line I have to go into 'edit type' and change the length in there, which changes the length for all that type??? it would be great if I could just click on a grip and change the length as I wanted. any help would be much appreciated. ThanksBar mark annotation drag grip??-barmark-annotation-revit.png

    There's a way to add grips to generic annotation family but they cannot be used in scaled views.

    However, you could nest the text and the arrow in a detail component and control the length of the line with a grip.

    The text is a schedule mark tag, how would I create the detail component to control the length of the line with a grip as you mentioned?? (thanks for the reply)

    Is it a tag or a generic annotation?

    Also, if you were to create 2 completely different concrete structures within the same project file (thus 2 separate drg sheets and schedules required), how would you filter the bars to create 2no. schedules? would you do it with 'phases' or 'assemblies'??

    Depends on what version you are using. Prior to 2013 I would recommend adding a parameter to filter schedules by. 2013 and after just use assemblies.

    thanks gdoherty, I am on 2014 and found using assemblies is very easy to filter schedules. I am however have problems with taking into account bending/cutting tolerances in my schedule. Obviously the dimensions it creates are based on covers, is there a way (e.g. a tick box or something similar) of taking off an extra 10/15/20/40mm for bending and cutting tolerances off the bars, without physically changing the bar dimensions manually? How do you guys go about this?

    We typically will model to the lenghts we want fabricated. However, in 2014 they added a bar rounding that you can adjust in the Rebar preferences.
