- Tags are very common in architectural drawings.…We typically add tags to rooms and doors and windows…and walls, and many other items.…Tags often reference a designation on the schedule…or on a detail where we can find out more information…about the item in question.…In Revit, the element, the tag, and the schedule…are all linked together.…The tag basically asks a question of the object…to which it's attached,…and reports the result in the symbol on screen.…The same designation is often included…in a field on the schedule…so that a cross-reference can be made.…So, I'm in a file called, "Adding Tags,"…and I want to look at a few different examples…of placing tags here in our file.…
So, over here on the Annotate tab,…I'm gonna go to the tag panel here…and we're gonna start with the Tag by Category command.…Shortcut for this is t + g,…and you can also find the tool up here…on the quick access toolbar.…Now, if I just slowly move my mouse around the screen,…what you're gonna see is little tags kind of come and go…as my mouse moves around.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
