Here’s a quick tip to round off the week, most of you may know this already, but I think ALL of you should know, therefore I’m posting this little tip!  Ever had a View such as a cad detail or a drafting view that you want to reference by a new callout in your project?  There’s a quick little button you can check in the options bar before you place the callout that will allow you to do this.

Placing a callout for an existing view:

  1. Select the callout tool.

  2. Check the “Reference other view:” option in the options bar.
    TotD-062609-1
  3. Select which view you want to reference.
    TotD-062609-2
  4. Place the callout.  Note: the callout you place does not affect the area shwon for the existing view so take care as to how you place the callout.
    TotD-062609-3

Like I said, short and sweet, just the way we like it here!  Hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope you stop by next week for more, Revit TotD!  As always, enjoy, comment, share!
