Since Tag schedules, note blocks, etc. do not give the ability to show only those items that are tagged or noted on any single sheet (yet???) ...you know, like the old things we called "sheet notes" in the traditional drafting days?; and since the Keynote Legends actually do (YES THEY DO!!!) allow us to show only those Keynotes referencing objects that are on views that are placed on any one (or more)sheet(s); they are something we can use to replicate those old Sheet Notes ...again: showing only those items called out & placed on a sheet ...YAAY!!!
BTW: CLICK HERE if you don't get the embedded white paper (below)...
Now, Enter the White Paper:Revit Schematic Keynotes Explained (Well, Bootlegged and Used)
That all said (and yes I am adding this on 12/21/2010) To create keynote databases a bit easier and "on the fly...ier" check this cool little standalone app for just this purpose. Cheers!!!

I guess this internet thing is going to catch on after all...
Anyhow; while I was looking in on who was perusing the blog I found that one of our Italian Reviteurs, from Perugia, Umbria uses Google Translate to get this blog translated... Hmmm...
Now, Google has many a great asset and 'translate' is one that I must admit is fantastic, even though it has not previously crossed my mind to use it (until now!!!). There are several BIM & Revit Blogs, etc. that are in languages other than my native English... now I can read (and understand) them...YAAY!!! I also placed a Google Translation widget on the right side of this here blog.
With that, the language barrier is just about to end, or it's already over... some of us just need to get clued in to that fact!!! Me included, it seems (seemed).
I just hope the translations are good... I did notice that "Fuck" translates a bit incorrectly into Italian, but that's OK it reads funnier!!!
