- Highlight the material to tag within
the element, and click to place the tag.
You can move the end
of the leader to a new material, and the new material will display
in the material tag.
Note You can highlight the material before you
select it by moving the cursor over the material. The material must
be displayed by setting the detail level to medium or fine. If the
material is not visible, the tag will not display properly.
If the material tag displays
a question mark (?), the Description field of the Identity tab for
the element’s material is blank. You can double-click the question
mark and enter a description of the material. Revit Architecture automatically
completes the Description field with this value.
