It takes time to set up a Revit Titleblock for a specific page size. In this blog I investigate some of the finer points of Titleblock.

These are the required page sizes

Note below the Revit Titleblock family for A0 is out by 1 mm in each direction, while A1, A2, A3 and A4 are all dead on.

Instead start from the New Size Metric.rft family template to create the A0 size correctly. Assume the origin to be at the bottom left of the border and resize away from it.

The information on the Titleblock might include:

  • Images
  • Text (“dumb” strings)
  • Labels (strings getting their values from parameters in the project they are loaded in)
  • Revision Schedule

Of the labels, the more interesting type derives its value from a shared project parameter applied to the Sheet category.

To manipulate the shared parameter from one source, its value is mapped to a global parameter.

The revision schedule can be tricky to manipulate at first. When wanting to edit the schedule, remember to toggle the category that is displaying in the properties panel.

Be careful of the height property. I prefer it set to “Variable” as I don’t like manually capturing data.

If revisions are skipped over to display on the sheet and the “Manual” mode is chosen then a good chance exists that some of the revisions will not display! The Variable option does not exhibit this behavior.

The easiest way to duplicate this Titleblock in another size is to save this file as the new size and then adjust the border size.

Remember to plot the sheets 1:1 and to center the plot.
