Good afternoon everyone, I've been working on a set where i have alot of callouts for plans, elevations and sections that seem to be repetitive but not parametric, and i've been wondering... Is there a way to combine notes database with a callout tool or perhaps a bubble revision tool? I've been thinking of a simpler way of marking up notes by using annotation bubble revision markers and linking them to notes that are shown separately on the sheet in list form. There are multiple reasons why this is a useful feature 1. CSI can be embedded into notes parametrically - unifying elements in the project to specifications without any deviation to notation 2. Simply the callout process in plans - and eliminate clutter by referencing notes beside the plans. 3. No errors in documentation 4. Information is centralized - and modification to notes or finishes can be made remotely. 5. Notation tool does not need to be updated independently from the bubble revision callouts - they're intended to work simultaneously. Method - My current method is simple - i created a 2 custom record fields one for number, the other for description of the object - and reference those records in a table for that layer only. I however - end up having to make one table for each layer (floor plans, rcp, tenant protection plans, fire safety plans, etc...) which is the only nuisance. I end up having 10 - 20 worksheets just for that set. Is there a way to combine this method with the notation tool? and is there a way to eliminate duplicates? perhaps a method that would allow us to use one worksheet dynamically? Either way, I know this feature doesn't exist, but i figure , if anyone has any ideas how to combine these tools, i'm all ears? perhaps Nemetchek will hear us? Thanks everyone!
