Data Tag Label vs Reference File

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a question on data tag label. does it works on reference file? coz i separate model file from drawing/sheets file. do refer the image on how i setup my file. for info i am using project sharing workflow.

Thanks in advance.

* the only elements that the data tag label detect is spaces. door,window,wall etc are not detected.

* only door that are not inserted in wall will be detected.

Hello Acip79,

 

The data tag should not work with Reference File. The ability to tag space/door in reference file is a bug and we will remove it. We do not allow tagging object from reference file, because if you removed the object, the model will not know for this until you update the referencing.

Klvanov,

 

Separating model files from sheet files is standard practice for workflow. How am I supposed to efficiently tag objects such as walls if referenced models cannot be tagged?

 

Best,

Joshua

Hello Joshua,

 

This is good remark. We will try to find a solution for this.

For the moment workaround is to unlock the referenced objects, then you will be able to tag them.

Thanks Klvanov, I gave that a try, however when the reference is updated the link between the data tag and the object is broken. 

It also wouldn't work in interior elevations as the tags would need to be put in the annotations layer.

I think this really needs to be resolved and VW needs to put forward a workflow as this is something that's so fundamental.

Totally agree with this. It is impossible to separate master BIM file with worksheet file referencing it for elevations, sections, etc.... even in plans it would be useful to callout doors, objects, windows, walls, etc...

@KIvanov Sorry, this would not be a good workaround because once we update the reference file all elements will be locked back. So the data tags will note attached to the elements. Furthermore if we move the data tags, a ⚠️ sign will appear meaning we need to reattached to its elements. We might need to repeat this steps whenever we update the reference file.

I am having the same issue.  space tags will not connect between reference files.  tried it with reference layers and reference viewports.  I gave up on using project sharing because kept getting permission errors.  I am at a loss.This is a big deal.
