Review Revit annotation elements with Ideate Annotate


When Annotate is first opened, only the active view is considered. The Selection panel gives you additional options that Revit’s built-in tagging does not provide:


The Rules panel contains a Category: selector drop-down and a Search: tool. Use these options to narrow down the results to meet your requirements.

The main part of the Rules panel displays a dynamic list of Tag Rules that can be used to automatically tag Revit elements. The dynamic nature of the list is that it will only display rules that are applicable to the view. In order for an element to be taggable it must meet both of these conditions:

  1. The Revit Category is visible in the view.
  2. There is a Revit Tag loaded for the Revit Category in question.

You are not required to create Tag Rules to use this feature but doing so will greatly improve the consistency of a drawing set. Learn more about Customizing Ideate Annotate Tag Rules.

The Overrides pane is where different tagging behavior can be defined. The display will vary, depending upon the category that is selected. Regardless of the category, these options will always be displayed.


At the bottom of the Tag tab you will find additional tools.
