    Bolt center to center (gauge) in tag

    I modeled a End plate connection in Revit, then took a section view (Building Section) of that so that I could add the information needed.

    I was trying to use a tag for the bolts, is there anyway for a tag to get the center to center (gauge) of the bolt pattern?
    I am not showing the gauge in my view or trying not to, I just wanted to see if I could get it with a tag, I am only showing the vertical spacing of the bolts in my view.

    Yes. To get this in a tag, you have to add a shared parameter in the family you are tagging, then creating a tag with a label to the shared parameter you added. It is a little involved to describe in a reply here, but not difficult. Try this Autodesk help or hit up Youtube.
