Preview Your Leader

In Revit on October 4, 2012 at 5:35 am

I just realized I never shared this tip. It’s something that drove me nuts until I figured it out. Sometimes when adding a keynote, the keynote tag would be visible while placing, but not the leader. After placement, the leader and keynote both show up just fine. In my case, the reason was that my current workset was one that was hidden in the view. Changing the current workset to one that was visible brought back the leader visibility. Apparently keynotes (perhaps other annotation as well?) take on the internal workset of the view, not the user-defined workset that happens to be current. If anyone knows of other culprits that cause this visibility issue, feel free to comment and I’ll update this post.

P.S. I recognize the interesting timing on a post with this title. It’s just that I started this draft a long time ago and didn’t want to change it. If you came here expecting something else, sorry. I think #BigBird is still trending on Twitter.  .-)
