Revit Tip - Aligning floor plans and details on sheets

OK, you've been so patient with all of my sustainability posts, I've decided to release a real live blog post for all of the Revit programs that can really help you out.

Here's a great tip from our Revit guru Joe "REVitaly" Vivirito.

Problem:
When dragging and dropping floor plans onto your construction documents in Revit, the questions always comes up, "How do I align the floor plans on each sheet so that the building lines up on every sheet?"

Resolution:

Take a look at the Title Block I created that includes a grid that you can use to move your view, not your building, to the same grid point on every sheet. The lines are invisible and will not plot.

i wonder why the revit developers haven't created an easyer way to align drawings in different sheets... it's a huge flaw! not to mention duplicating sheets with drawings inside.

it's the first time i'm in this blog. saw it in CADdigest. i'm going to explore your other threads. bye

still can't snap lines in my view to the grid lines. still have to eyeball the placement, there is no way to snap and make sure each plan is placed exactly in the same spot.
