If you're wondering what tags have been assigned, the Loaded Tags task dialog (shortcut: LT) will list all tags assigned to be used for each element category. A simple drop-down list lets you select the default tag family to use. As you develop your template, remember to keep this list up to date.
Annotate > Tag pull-down > Loaded Tags
- our company's initials, so foreign tags are easily distinguished
- the word 'Tag' so all tags stay grouped together in the family browser
- the family type being tagged, for example: door
- suffix: to separate two tags for the same family type used for different purposes. For example: doors tagging basic information vs life safety information
XYZ Tag_Door (ALS)
XYZ Tag_Plumbing Fixture
XYZ Tag_Room (ALS)
XYZ Tag_Wall (Fire Rating)
XYZ Tag_Wall (Type)
Once loaded into the project, you'll want to add a leader arrowhead for each type of that tag.
Select the tag > Edit Type > choose Leader Arrowhead:
If you don't find an arrowhead you like, you can edit an existing type or create your own; Manage > Additional Settings > Arrowheads. Our standard arrowhead is the Filled 15 Degree Arrow, but we also use Heavy End and Filled Dot.
