Callouts – Floor plan vs detail

23 Jul

Revitize – Another Revit Blog: Callout view – plan vs detail.

Each view type has some built in properties and settings. Based on these differences one can choose a particular type.

Here are some differences.

Plan callout Detail callout
Callout tag Visible in intersecting views no yes
Color schemes can be assigned yes no
Can have dependent views yes no
Project Browser categorized under floor plans details
Cut plane can be changed yes no

In this case, since we dont want to see a toilet plan callout tag in other views (like elevation / section) and we might want to change the view range for some reason, it is a good idea to select the Callout > Floor plan type.
