Revit Tip: Room Tags

Room tags in sections

Tired of having to update your text strings in sections every time something changes? Or maybe you can't quite tell what room that really is cutting through.


Placing text as a means to tag a room is un-Revit. It also means that you will have to manually update all the text if anything changes. Let's face it, I'm lazy and don't want to do anything twice.


You can save time and frustration by tagging the room in section. Room tags are set to off in sections by default; Revit will ask you about this the first time.

Then tag your blue boxes in section.

In Revit 9.1, rooms have a height modifier. You can change this so that your rooms are easier to tag and show the actual size of the room.

This also allows you to have, if you wish, rooms that span multiple floors. This could be utilized for stair wells or elevators.
