An annotation symbol
is a tag or symbol applied to a family to uniquely identify that
family in a project. The tag can also include properties that appear
on schedules. See
Creating a Schedule or Quantity.
You create annotation symbols by selecting
the family category with which you want to associate the symbol,
sketching the symbol, and applying values to its properties. Some
annotation families are for tag purposes. Others are generic annotations
used for varying purposes.
Before reading this topic,
you should familiarize yourself with families. See
