Use Dynamo to automatically change the "Title on Sheet" parameter to match the name of the sheet that the view lives on in Revit.

Bulk match the “Title on Sheet” view parameters to their respective sheet name with Dynamo.

Use Dynamo to automatically change the "Title on Sheet" parameter to match the name of the sheet that the view lives on in Revit.

With this Dynamo Workflow, you can push the Sheet Name parameter to the “Title on Sheet” parameter of views that are placed on sheets. I recommend beginners to try to recreate this Dyn to help understand some of the basics of Dynamo. Feel free to comment or email with any questions.

    Where did you find the Get All Views node?
    Thanks!

      That node is from the Archi-lab_Grimshaw package.

    i get the how, but not the why…

      With larger projects, it is common to have view names that are not the name that you would like to show on your sheet’s title.

      For example, I like to prefix all of my views that go on sheets with “SV” and working views with “WV”. The view is named with a concatenation involving something like: SV – [phase] – [discipline] – [level] – [sector]. You probably don’t want that on your view’s title.

      Using the “Title on sheet” parameter allows you to call the view one name and the drawing title another.

        Yes. That part makes sense.

        It looks like the definition is using the name of the sheet for the Title on Sheet parameter. That’s the part I don’t understand. Every view has the same name as the name of the sheet?

        • BIM Extension, LLC

          Yes, this would only work on sheets with a single view on them.

          Good point, though, because a sheet with several enlarged plans would have their titles overridden with “Enlarged plans”!
