Way of using no-plot text?

Recommended Posts

Siberian

Now and then I need to place some temporary text in my model just as a reminder to take care of something later. Ideally it should have some no-plot-option and/or a way of hiding it without too much clicking. What is your preferred way of doing this?

There is no such thing in Revit. But most people have a practice where they have a "working view", then a "sheet view". Place your notes in your working view and leave the sheet view unchanged. 

 

Or, create a whole set of Views specific for notes that you know you'll regularly refer to throughout the project.

There are a number of ways that people have come up with but they all require changing visibility before and after printing. While these methods are easy to implement, it's just as easy to forget to do the manual changes causing unwanted notes on drawings or notes not being seen, i.e. user error.

 

I'm with TZ on this. Utilize working views for this type of thing.

It seems to me that this should be a relatively easy feature to program and that there has been considerable demand for no plot text throughout the years. For the price of the software and the number of users, I feel as though this is one of many significant oversights on the company. Granted there are workarounds or workflow methods which can create a similar result, but rather than discrediting the idea which is common to many professionals and was an available option on more primitive software maybe Autodesk should just give the customer what they want.......

If I had a nickel for all the times people have said this, I'd be rich man. If it were easy, it would be feature. The fact that there is a huge demand for it and it is not available tells me that it is not easy.
