Revit 2024 Options – Furniture Tags

SHARE

I was made aware of the behavior of annotations within Revit options. Options are different designs that can be presented for client acceptance. Taken to the extent that a large floor of a building must be presented in different furniture arrangements, it might also be advantageous to add tags and other annotations.

I tested Revit 2024 and came to the following conclusions.

When an item is placed into an option, it can no longer be added to other options. Instead, you must copy to clipboard and paste it into other options. This is also true of annotations.

When a piece of furniture is tagged, the tag is visible in the Main and Primary options if it is tagged in either the Main or primary options. After that the tag is moved from the old Primary to the new Primary if the Primary is reassigned.

If you tag in a non-primary option, the tags are half toned. When you then accept that option as the primary, the tags are added to the tags in the Main option, and the tag in the main option is added to the new primary option.

Feedback to Autodesk regarding this can be done by voting for the idea here. I recommend sending it out in a mailer and asking colleagues and contemporaries to vote for it.
