Revit 2010 Decal Path

If your path is too long to a specific decal image it will not render. You can workaround this by adding the path of your image to the Options-Rendering-Additional..Paths.

Autodesk is aware of this issue....

Rise and Run Roof Slope Tag

Thank you Autodesk for adding one of my wishlist items from way back! This may be a small thing but it's important to residential designers. Thanks again!

I found this on David Duarte's blog Revit Beginners...(Thanks David)

Go to Annotate... Spot Slope... and you might notice that Revit has a new slope annotation that works in plan and elevation view. (choose an arrow or triangle symbol from the options bar)

Now try annotating a roof slope with a spot annotation triangle and you might notice something peculiar. Maybe your roof is 6:12 but the annotation read 4:12. Why the error? Because Revit is annotating the Hip not the face of the roof...Try hitting the tab key while floating over the roof edge and you'll see that the slope tag can report the slope of the hip or the face. The tool just happens to default to reporting the hip first.

This tool does not yet work on ramps or railings.

Tag Box Size Relative to Contents

Is it possible to have a tag's box size expand with the contents?

For example, if a room is numbered '1' it doesn't need a big box, but if it's numbered '1001' it does. (This is applicable to all tags really.)

The answer is no, it does not expand automatically. You will need to make a few different types that have different sized boxes.
