    I think this has something to do with pasted / existing text. On our imported docs, I'm pretty sure we had to remove all formatting, apply the multilevel list style, and then re-indent to the correct level.

    If you're talking about in word....

    1. Choose define new list style from the drop down

    2. 1 chooses the list level, 2 chooses the indentation level.

    I don't know how to change what the indent increments are though

    I have a question regarding the .DOC -> PDF -> IMG workflow for specs/notes in Revit. We're currently using this method to get our general notes sheet into Revit, mostly because the capability to have dynamic multi-lists (still can't believe Autodesk hasn't worked this out, its a pretty standard need to make everyone's lives easier).

    Anyway, occasionally when we're bringing in the images of the .DOC via PDF (using jpeg images) there's a half-tone-ish grey masking coming in with the background of the image. Is there a way to eliminate this that I'm missing? It's a bit of a pain at the moment because it's popped up in 3 columns on 1 sheet, just looking awful.

    Copy/Paste from the DOC straight to Revit. No need for the PDF and Image steps. In the past I just put the text on the sheet. Use drafting views or legends if you wish to retain the information for later.

    Doesn't really work as desired. You lose the formatting of the specifically defined multi-list. The spacing between lines is off, the indents disappear, anything rolling over to an additional line begins at the far left (below the item number in the list) rather than aligned with the text above.

    Still better than lots of images...don't try putting it all into one big text block as well. Keep them separated some.

    There is another option to getting your docs (Word docs, PDFs, Images, Videos, spreadsheets, etc.) linked in Revit - and even linked to your elements and materials. VisiSpecs is an application designed for linked the elements and materials to the required construction specs for automation, coordination and verification. Click an element and see the linked specs directly in Revit. VisiSpecs also supports other file types and hyperlinks so select an element or material and see all the files and links associated with that item. Of course, all the files are also available in a tree folder structure which is customizable. Owners, Designers, Contractors, and even FM can benefit from the access to the linked files directly in Revit. Check it out at www.chalklineinc.com
